So that's all right then

Since New Year's, in three separate cases, three schoolteachers in Howard County, Md., have been arrested on sex charges involving their high-school students. In response, the county school superintendent -- clearly a believer in the power of PowerPoint presentations, clearly defined meeting agendas, and stapled handouts to solve any problem -- vows that from now on, part of the orientation process for new teachers will include instruction on "how you maintain the appropriate distance between you and your students." So that's all right then, as Private Eye would say.
