I’ve never heard of Camille Casteel, but if the priorities of the Chandler Unified School District in Chandler, Arizona, are in the right place, there ought to be a movie about her.
We’re talking “Stand and Deliver” territory — or maybe even “Dead Poets Society,” if Robin Williams’ character weren’t so insufferable. Hollywood should be lining up to bid on her story. After all, this is a superintendent whose retirement party is so important that it trumps both prom and graduation in terms of significance.
Or maybe it’s not that important and the Chandler Unified School District are a bunch of hypocrites.
I’m going to bet on the latter, given that some parents are having an anaphylactic reaction to the fact Casteel is being given a full-on retirement party with limited constraints while prom has been eliminated and graduation is subject to considerable restrictions, all in the name of limiting COVID.
