Seattle Times letters to the editor

Puyallup students’ sex stories in the newspaper

What were you thinking?

Who thought this would be a good idea to discuss sex in the school paper, anonymously or otherwise [“Puyallup students sue over sex story” News, Nov. 13]? Is this teacher still working there? Was a retraction printed in the “JagWire” apologizing for naming the students?

I think the teacher deserves to be fired and the students suspended for their misconduct. I also think the girls who were interviewed and named should have known better than to openly discuss their sex-lives if they weren’t prepared for the reactions of their peers.

— Karla Sewell, Lake Stevens
