    When you look at the two different pictures of this principal who has been involved with abusing kids for 35 years, he sure kept a smiling face in 2011. The latest one makes him look like the real man he has been away from the facade. The children he has been involved with since the 1970s probably saw his picture or an article about his prestigious award in 2011. Sort of a Sandusky type guy, it would appear. However, Sandusky had extreme power as he was part of the Penn State football program for years with the legend.

    These guys think, somehow, that they are not going to get caught. And in this case he went 35 years, at least, before the investigators got to putting the nail in the coffin. It is amazing that his firing in August right before school started wasn't highlighted in the news. However, Charter schools appear to not have a good public relations process and let the people know in their school district be a part of this process.

    The Charter school system gets state money for their schools and teachers and need more supervision from the State Office of Education, including background checking.

    We need to know why he was fired. There is no reason to fire a Blue Ribbon Principal. Somebody knew something and didn't report it.

    The two pictures of the Principal Weber are strikingly different considering they were taken only 1 year apart. Interesting how the life seeps out of a man once he is defeated. Sad story indeed.

    These guys don't know how they destroy the lives of these young people. Of course, they're often victims themselves. I don't understand how they can do this to others when they were also abused as children. I guess these guys just don't care. It's sickening.

    As a father and now grandfather of 10 precious grand children, I simply can't fathom an adult abusing a small child.
    It is of some comfort to me knowing that this man, if guilty of all that he appears to be, will suffer much more after this life than a few years that he may have left to spend in prison.
    Because of what he put these children through during a time when they should be care free and enjoy the innocence of childhood, instead they have to spend their lives realizing how sick and demented this man was with them.
    Would not want to be in this man's shoes.

    What? a charter school with problems? I thought the only problems were in public schools.

    old man, if he was fired due to suspicions, and those weren't reported, he won't be going to jail alone...

    Is it fair to ask why he was fired from a school last year?
