Dalton has removed the names of all their directors from their website. For some reason, they don't want you to know who they are.
Did I mention their motto is, "Go Forth Unafraid?"
Also, the administration has decided they want all teachers to come back post break, but initially gave them all a lot of latitude to say no. Most did, apparently going forth unafraid. So then Dalton said, no, really, we weren't kidding. We want you to come back. They narrowed the latitude for saying no.
At this, I'm told by insiders that the black teachers erupted, repeating earlier claims that demands to return are racist. THEN, teachers apparently "officially" tied their return to an acquiescence to the demands in their manifesto. They think it's all reasonable and want it all agreed to before they come back. See here for the full list. Set aside some time to get through it all.
This is an extremely difficult situation, but one Dalton engineered itself. Hire radical teachers, and you will get radicalism.
In case you were wondering, here's the Dalton board. The Wayback Machine is so useful.
