Anyone accountable in Batavia fiasco?

The article on May 25 in the Daily Herald recounted a direct infringement on that teacher's rights and now he is up for pending discipline for telling his students about their 5th Amendment right not to incriminate themselves. This was about a survey on drugs, alcohol and tobacco use; the survey had the student's name printed on it.

The school district declined to provide a copy to the Daily Herald, and it was just dumb luck that the teacher saw it prior to handing it out just 10 minutes after receiving it.

Who is responsible for type of activity? Does the school board check what type of surveys or materials are being distributed? Is anyone responsible? Is this another case of sliding something through, hoping that nobody notices? Will anybody be accountable? Will heads roll? They should be and our students should not be subjected to this type of underhanded treatment.

My hat's off to teacher John Dryden.
