How many of that 1% have committed domestic abuse?
How many of that fraction of 1% have shown up at their spouse's place of work?
How many of that fraction caused a lock down?

Happily, there's no one in my extended family or friends in jail.

Exactly. And that's hardly unique to schools... Try having a boyfriend show up at your place of work to start an argument while you're waiting tables or ringing up customers at the mall and see how long you keep that job. BTDT - my crazy ex cost me a great waitressing job when I was in college because he just couldn't leave well enough alone. And my employer didn't have the very valid concern for the wellbeing of dozens of children, just the desire to maintain an atmosphere that wouldn't drive customers away.

I totally disagree. I do not believe, they are being hypocritical.

Did Charlesworth do everything right? If so, then the court system and law enforcement failed her, not the school. The ex has a long history of violence, but she has four children with him. Regardless, the relationship with the abuser is ongoing. I think, the latest incident was simply the last straw. The school has an obligation to protect their staff and students.

I asked my DH how he would react if this happened at our DGD's school. His reaction was teh same as my reaction. Feel badly about the teacher, but if she stayed, DGD leaves. I asked my DD, and hers was a little more liberal than ours. She said that her first reaction was nto to pull her DD> She is not really sure, it is hypothetical for us, but she was less prone to take her DD out of school.
