Apparently the day before Valentines Day this year the principal at Brackenridge High School in San Antonio was arrested for DWI. I know, big deal right? If no one was hurt then why does it matter? Well I kind of think that as a principal you are considered the top role model for the entire school that you run. As a role model does this not come off as completely irresponsible and potentially dangerous behavior? And why would I, as a parent, want someone like that influencing the decisions that my kids make not only on a daily basis, but their long term future goals?
This article is so completely vague, not wanting to mention his name and not giving out specific details on his arrest, it makes me wonder why it is that the police would not want to disclose all information pertaining to the incident. Either it will clear him from any wrongdoing or it will show what kind of a person is running this high school. And if he was indeed arrested for DWI I should think that he would lose his job. It only seems fair, I mean how many people out there would lose their jobs for something like that who aren’t responsible for 100+ students daily? It is just outrageous to me. If you want to DRINK then drink, but don’t be an IDIOT and drive afterwards. Call someone for a ride or get a CAB.
There is NEVER a reason to drive after consuming alcohol. There are so many other options available that don’t involve risking your life or the lives of the innocent people that are killed from that reckless behavior. If you are old enough to go out and drink in the first place than you are old enough to know better than to get behind the wheel when wasted. SMH. Ridiculous.
