Luke runs into Becky in the hallway. Becky asks how his mom is, and he's confused. Becky explains that she came over to talk the other day but that she left kind of suddenly. Luke is horrified and apologizes, but Becky assures him that it was alright, they had a good talk. But Luke keeps apologizing and sort of shuffles off, "That will never happen again, I'm so sorry."
School board meeting. A prim-lipped lady questions Tami, about whether Tami thought it was appropriate to take on the role of counselor to a girl. Tami wonders if this lady even knows what her "role" is: "I am a certified counselor and principal. I followed protocol and district policies." The lady continues challenging her, accusing Tami of imposing her values on an innocent and confused sixteen-year-old girl. Tami: "No ma'am I did NOT impose my values." The lady's on a roll: "You referred her to an abortion clinic!" Tami clarifies once again that she did not, that her mother took her to the clinic. The lady: "You provided her with information that allowed her to get her child aborted!" Well, put the internet in jail, then. I mean, geez. Tami keeps contradicting and the prim lady wonders if Tami is calling her a liar. Tami says that no, but the lady has bad information. Wow, bad information. What a surprise, in the abortion debate. A guy jumps in to get them back on track, that is, off the abortion track. A parent has complained that an educator from their district has inappropriately advised a girl. Superintendent Paul agrees. The prim lady tries again: "Mrs. Taylor, did you or did you not advise this girl to get an abortion." Tami quietly says "No, I did not advise her to get an abortion." And too many reality shows later, I yell from my TV -- show 'em the tape of your conversation with Becky, Tami! Tami finally takes a stand, telling these troglodytes that a girl came to her, scared and desperate for an adult to listen to her. She gave her options and she listened, that is her responsibility to the girl as a principal and as a human being. Tami gets up and asks that they keep all this in mind while they make their decision, and effectively calls the meeting to an end.
