Calgary: Gerald Pedron, principal of Sundance School who used a rope to lock students in a classroom has been fined by Alberta Teachers’ Association for his irresponsible actions. The principal was also found guilty of throwing a student in Nurse’s room and pushing another to break up a fight. But no stern action has been taken for those actions.

Sean Fitzgerald lawyer of Pedron said, “Perdron was as distraught but relieved to have been found not guilty of the more serious charges.” He also added, “The point that I was making before the panel, and they in essence agreed with me, is that physical interaction is going to happen under crisis situations and it’s a matter of how far the teacher goes”.
