When the silver lining to a school's scandal is that their teacher is dead, it is time to find another school.


I'd prefer a "no touching" tribute. (via Knox Grammar)

An elite, all-boys private school in Wahroonga, Sydney just held a memorial for one of their former teachers, Bruce Barrett, despite the fact that he was convicted of five counts of indecent assault and two accounts of sexual assault during his time as an educator.

Knox Grammar School held a funeral for him that was mandatory for students to attend, and even honored him with memorial gates bearing the inscription "He Touched Us All."

It seems like a horribly offensive joke, but the inscription was not meant to be ironic. It was not supposed to be a tongue-in-cheek nod to any kind of wrongdoing involving tongues and/or cheeks. It was just a terribly classless mistake.
