Random – It amazes me that this story goes on day after day but the national media has ignored it. The news has stayed local in the Philadelphia region and jumped across the ocean to the British press. As of tonight, I have not found anything in national coverage.
How this district is functioning is beyond my comprehension. I can’t imagine the school board, the administration, teachers or parents focusing on education.

The Coatesville Area School District’s board is set to vote Tuesday night to accept the resignations of two school officials whose text-message exchanges – rife with racial and sexual slurs – surfaced over the weekend.
But parents with children in the district say the conduct of former Superintendent Richard Como and high school athletic director Jim Donato is nothing short of a betrayal – and are planning to pack Tuesday’s meeting to demand that the board fire the men outright.
