The Principal is not your Pal
At least this one isn't: Some parents in a local school district say the principal was out of line for taking by the hand an 8-year-old accused of stealing into every classroom in the school and telling kids she is a thief and a liar. Marlene Whitby is the principal of William Penn Elementary School. The parents of the little girl she humiliated say she scarred their child for life. The girl's father told Channel 4 Action News, "What good can you get out of that -- abusing a child? What good can you get out of that." Another student accused his 8-year-old daughter of stealing $5. That's when her family says Whitby walked the girl into each and every classroom at William Penn, telling all of the students she was a thief and a liar. Later, the girl's accuser recanted her story. Fire her crazy ass already.
