When someone is a professional, and yes we count Principal as a professional,
we expect some level of good judgment.
Principals make decisions every day that can affect the lives of their students.
Had the 18 year old not been one of her students, it would have still been poor judgment.
That the 18 year old was one of her students, could easily move this into criminal behavior.
There is something seriously messed up with the Principals risk/reward decision tree!
