Sure, the Principal could find the plot out online, but that's almost certainly NOT what he was most interested in. Instead, he wanted to know (or at least should have wanted to know) how the book furthered the goals of his English department, and how his teachers used the book in their classes. To understand that information, he'd need to know not just the actual plot, but also the plot and thesis AS INTERPRETED BY HIS TEACHERS. Nothing on google would have given him that information.

It sounds to me like he went to the experts on the subject instead of being lazy and googling.
I'd say "blame" is the wrong word. I find it odd that a principal could go through 4 years of high school, 4 years of college, obtain a post-graduate degree, work in a high school and not know what Brave New World is about.
