Case #3 – A Bully’s Threat (adapted from Theodore Kowalski)
The School Principal and the Record of Students’ Fighting
Questions and Reflections:
If you were the principal, would you consider Carl Turner’s record of fighting relevant to reaching a decision on this matter? Why or why not?
When the principal tries to find Carl, he discovers that he is not in his fourth-period class. How do you evaluate his absence from school after three periods with respect to making a decision in this case?
Assume you are the principal. How would you handle this situation?
What do you think about the security guard’s suggestion about the parents filing a complaint?
Should the police have been contacted immediately?
