    Online tell-all details sexual relationship between former Granite City teacher, student

    A Metro East school district is under fire after a former teacher published an online book detailing a relationship he had with a female student. In 2018, teacher Andrew Crider resigned from Granite City High School after it was revealed that he was having a sexual relationship with a then 18-year-old student. Now many in the community are asking if the district is doing enough to protect students after Crider published an online tell all. “It’s pretty gross,” said Granite City parent Stacie Johnson. “I was dumbfounded,” said former Granite City student Devon Austin. “Why would he post this?” That’s ...

    I've tried to refrain from commenting much, but one aspect of this that I can't just get over is the public humiliation Andrew Crider is inflicting on his wife and and especially on his children.

    At the time the events unfolded in 2018, his children were ages two, five, seven.

    Four years later that two-year-old is likely in the first grade or soon will be. For the next twelve years that kid's peers and teachers will be reading Room 270, and they're not likely to keep it to themselves, especially not the other kids. That then-two-year-old has been condemned to twelve-years of teasing and humiliation from his/her peers. The then-seven-year-old is luckier: He/she only has to endure seven years of the emotional abuse.

    The internet is forever. Room 270 won't be disappearing anytime soon.
