Guilderland "culture climate inquiry" to go public, Congressional candidate stops to help, Paterson rakes it in, mega-mansions in Saratoga, urination leads to struck pedestrian

The Guilderland School Board will release the "culture climate inquiry" today that led to the re-assignment of two popular high school teachers to a middle school. The situation has prompted protests by parents and students -- and even led to the school board walking out of an earlier meeting when the topic came up. [TU]

Comments

From the Guilderland School Board article:

"Although Paludi's probe exonerated Nelligan of that charge, the superintendent wrote him a letter that stated "such a conclusion does not mean that the behavior did not occur, but rather that the evidence is equally conclusive both ways," according to the documents."

conclusive: forming an end or termination; especially putting an end to doubt or question "conclusive proof"; "the evidence is conclusive"
