Highlights get girl sent home
January 11, 2007
Some might consider Sandridge Elementary School Principal Leroy Coleman a bit old-school.
The 50-something educator doesn't approve of kids holding hands in the hallways or "romancing."
Boam says her daughter is being singled out, pointing out that Coleman has sent her daughter home from school several times for no good reason, including for kissing a boy.
"The only reason they come here is to get educated," Coleman said. "I'm not having any romancing going on." (http://www.dailysouthtown.com/news/206522,112NWS3.article)

Principal, teacher quit after sex video surfaces
POSTED: 11:06 p.m. EDT, April 13, 2007
CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- A principal and a teacher at a suburban elementary school quit amid allegations they were caught on video having sex in the principal's office, authorities say.
In keeping with Cook County's reputation for bare-knuckle politics, the scandal broke after copies of the sex tape were mailed anonymously to parents this week, just days before a contested school board election.
The case has also created something of a mystery: Who planted the camera that recorded the action? [Summer says, "See Story #1 above. Mystery solved."]
Leroy Coleman and Janet Lofton submitted their resignations after meeting with the district superintendent Thursday, said John Izzo, board attorney for the Sandridge Elementary School district, about 20 miles south of Chicago. (http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/04/13/teacher.principal.sex.ap/index.html)
