Criminal Records

There was an incident today that resulted in me sitting in the office after school, watching a police officer read one of my favorite students his rights while the poor boy held back tears. It all sounded very serious today, with court dates and charges and a very intimidating cop, but hopefully they were just scaring him and it will all vanish.

Regardless, I am feeling viciously guilty. It all started because I reported something to administration, when I could have turned a blind eye and let my kid continue without a blemish on his record. But it’s my job to report things, and I’m hoping that this will serve as a wake-up call rather than a life destroyer. Right now it could solidly go either way. But it has to be better to learn a lesson at 14 than learn a lesson on an adult record… right? Nothing in this was my fault, but I can’t help feeling like it was.
