If he had been caught doing this outside of school than maybe I can see your point here, but he brought drugs to school, used them on the premises and went back to teach children while impaired. There is no middle ground here. Like I said in previous posts HE erased any good that he may have done at the school in the past. It is no one's fault but his own. His offense might not be as serious as abusing kids but I would say using drugs on school property is #2 on the list of "Don't do these things as a Teacher/Coach". There is no argument to be had for him keeping his job.None of the things you listed would be worthy of working through giving someone a second chance, because those things all put kids in immediate danger (the payoff to hire somebody may not count as "immediate danger" but still damaging in its own right). I would have to concede that your logic carries over if Andy had been accused of distributing...but what he did, he did by himself, to himself, and to compare that to raping a minor is a bit ridiculous. The problem we have here is that people aren't seeing anything in between total forgiveness and complete termination with no chance of return. They could have had him off for a time with mandatory rehab and some date in the future to return, and that would have been a reasonable middle ground. Everybody seems to be discarding his successful coaching career as if it shouldn't be a factor...it boosts morale for the kids to have a coach who is able to motivate and train them to win, which he has. Part of the decision for getting rid of an employee is an honest analysis of whether or not he/she is an asset to whatever operation you are trying to run. It makes sense that they would want to work with someone who adds value.
