The drama started in 2004 at an elementary school in Westmount, a wealthy Montreal suburb. Kanavaros had asked a nine-year-old student to redo homework because she believed the child’s mother had done the assignment.
Outraged by the teacher’s reaction, the parents, Hagop Artinian and Kathryn Rosentein sued Kanavaros, the school principal and the school board. They asked for $155,000, claiming their son was humiliated.
After four years of negotiation, the school and the parents came to an agreement that included that both parties had to keep the case confidential.
The parents broke the agreement by talking to the media.
Good for the teacher. Maybe parents will start to act like parents.
