Lord knows I never want to be a principal, but if I were to be one, I wouldn't make a statement as stupid as this in response to two 5th graders accused of having sex in a classroom while two others were fondling each other in the same room:
"This is one incident and everyone is making a big deal out of it," Futch said. "I never had a teacher complain to me, but I have heard them complain to each other."
First of all, it IS a big fucking deal (no pun intended) and he should at least pretend to be outraged and concerned about the emotional well being of kids that young engaging in sexual activity.
Secondly, it doesn't matter HOW the idiot hears of complaints, whether directly or indirectly, he should take them into consideration if they are supported by evidence in the number of incidences that take place in the school in any given week. One thing I can't stand in a school is a princpal who keeps his head in the sand or shove serious incidents under a rug rather than deal with the situation to the best interests of the students. If it weren't for the complaints and outrage of other adults, a lot of administrators would be so quick to bury crap like this faster than you can say smaller scale conspiracy theory.
