What, exactly, is Sheldon Berman thinking?
Now that PRP coach Jason Stinson has been found not guilty of reckless homicide, he thinks it’s OK to put the embattled former coach in front of a classroom and wouldn’t object a bit if some oblivious JCPS principal hires him to coach a football team.
Berman says he plans to meet with Stinson next week. Stinson, who was placed in a non-instructional position after he was charged, makes about $45K per year.
That not guilty verdict didn’t proclaim that Stinson didn’t lose his temper and take it out on a bunch of high school kids. It didn’t say that he was not guilty of running players until somebody quit. And it didn’t make the civil case pending against him go away.
Even Berman’s JCPS investigation found that Stinson’s actions were so atrocious that a whole new set of coaching standards were set up and new training is now required on motivational techniques in high school sports.
The verdict meant that Stinson’s action weren’t deserving of jail time. But that doesn’t mean that he should be unleashed on another public school’s students.
