You Can Get Burned When You Fight Fire With Fire

Savannah and her mother are fed up with the foul language used in class by her music teacher. Their complaints to the teacher and the school administration go unheeded. So Savannah makes her grievance known in a more public way.

It seems to me that there were other avenues open to Savannah and her mother, more prudent ones that still would have been heard. A letter to the editor of the local newspaper comes to mind. But what Savannah did was over the top. The parents of small children in the audience must have been pretty upset by it. I know I would be.

I would have plugged my kids' ears! I think a letter to the editor, or contacting heads of school boards, or whatever might have been a better solution.....

Yeah, that seems a little equivalent to tossing a grenade!
