A hysterical column in the Boston Globe stops just short of arguing that Benjamin Zander should be garrotted for hiring a long-rehabilitated sex offender.
It ignores the fact that Zander was fired by president Tony Woodcock long before this employment matter came to light. The case of the videographer withy a murky past was only dug out to justify Zander’s dismissal.
The questions that need to be answered begin with another matter of natural justice – why did the NEC sack a good teacher after 40 years’ service. Was it a case of age discrimination?
We await answers to those questions and neither Woodcock nor his expensive crisis-management flak are doing anything except puffing smoke clouds and praying the scandal will go away. It won’t.
