After Chokas finding of no coverup, Day apology warranted

For over a year now, The Day has published essentially the same article over and over again rehashing and retelling the allegations in the Stonington High School/Timothy Chokas case. The attorney retained by the school board to investigate the allegations recently concluded that there was no coverup by Stonington public school officials. She also indicated that there most likely was insufficient evidence legally to terminate Chokas. Yet, school officials have continuously been under attack for a year. Surely, an apology by The Day is warranted.

Also, given the facts and current current challenges facing students and teachers in our community, shouldn’t all educational resources be dedicated to improving students’ education, not engaging lawyers?
