1) we need to punish students who make false allegations and parents who threaten frivolous lawsuits (yes, these are both extremely common)
2) we need to dis-empower administrators and power individual teachers. A few teachers, especially the older ones, are shitty at what they do and don't care about kids. The vast majority do. Where it gets fucked up is all the games administrators can play to fuck over a good teacher who disrupts their control.
