In almost thirty years of teaching I've learned that getting accurate information from the other "witnesses in the classroom" is a tricky business. I always start with a predisposition that favors the authority rather than the other way around...and the authority is typically bound by confidentiality and privacy regulations in such a way that he cannot defend himself from the attacks on his character. I have no doubt that the very sincere people who serve a very needy part of our community at the Chattanooga Resuce Mission are deeply saddened by Mr. Whitaker's death. I find it ironic that a Sunday article bemoaning the absence of beds for homeless Chattanoogans is followed by a Monday article with such a negative characterization of the only group of people making the personal sacrifices to offer those beds.
