    A statement in the comments of that article from the School District:

    Lauderdale County High School has issued a statement:

    "At the same time, as we know you will agree, the guests who visit Lauderdale County High School — people like you — expect and deserve to be treated with professionalism and care in everything we do. That is a universal standard in the education business. That includes respecting and protecting the privacy of every guest and teacher, which is why our franchisees who own and operate Lauderdale County High Schools have strict policies to protect personal information — even teacher's hateful and homophobic rants.

    "To that end, we have expelled the student responsible for making the tape of Coach Grisham. We apologize to Coach Grisham and his team for the embarrassment that one student has caused them."

    Let's see that last part again: To that end, we have expelled the student responsible for making the tape of Coach Grisham. We apologize to Coach Grisham and his team for the embarrassment that one student has caused them.

      before any actual school district official comment. But it is likely pretty much what they would say if they had to be truthful.

      Sports are the mostest importantest thing in the worldest. Even that oh-so-special Spelling is a distant second.

      Teachers can act as badly as they want and the system covers their ass. If a student doesn't like it (or doesn't like being hurt), then the student is the one being the trouble maker and gets punished.

      this comment is snark, but people are picking it up on other blogs as being true.

      We want people to contact the superintendent and complain, but it's really important that the complaints be fact based for us to have any credibility.

      Yes. There ARE progressive Democrats in Alabama. Visit with us at Left in Alabama

        This is what I get for reading while caffeine-impaired, and not fact-checking :)
