(JW REVIEW) – Three teachers in Rhode Island have resigned after a series of derogatory messages about students were made public by hackers. The messages were sent via the Slack messaging app between teachers at Blackstone Valley Prep Mayoral Academy in Cumberland, RI.
The leaked screenshots included messages that convinced Dr. Scout that his daughter, Hudson Deighan, was right in her decision to change schools:
She came to me before, complaining of a toxic environment at her school. They told her that it couldn't be true, and asked her to think about what she was putting into the environment, too.

And after seeing these messages, we had to go back and apologize to her. We were so sorry. She kept telling us that lots of students were having problems with the teachers.
And we kept saying 'no no no, it can't be as bad as you're saying. Then we found out it was worse. It was worse. That horrible scenario where you don't believe your child and then you realize you should have been standing by them."
