More from the wonderful world of education ...

... this time locally: Former principal sentenced to prison.

Former Sussex Central High School Principal Dana I. Goodman could spend at least the next four years behind bars for having sex with a 17-year-old student.

Goodman, 38, was sentenced Friday to 32 years in prison, with all but four years suspended contingent upon completion of an intensive sex-offender rehabilitation program while behind bars.

In court Friday, Goodman broke down in tears and apologized for hurting the victim, her family and the community, describing himself as a changed man in the six months since his arrest.

"I made a horrible choice. ... I have no one to blame but myself," he said, clutching a Bible and speaking of his renewed Christian faith. "I made a mistake, and I'm truly sorry."

At least the dude seems to recognize that he has no one to blame but himself. That alone is, sadly, refreshing in today's day and age.

Meanwhile, Mike Matthews reminds us (WHY??) of a recent sex scandal between a teacher and student. Ick.
