Great poll!

I voted for Mr. Bradley first: he was always involved in his students' lives, he pitched in and taught classes, he saved Tootie and Blair, he even cancelled his trip to help one of his students in distress.

I voted for Mr. Parker second: he risked his own job to save Mrs. Garrett's. He risked it again to try to combat censorship at Eastland. He took an interest in the lives of his students, and knew their names. He slowly began taking Mrs. Garrett for granted, but learned his lesson when she left Eastland, and they parted on good terms.

I voted for Mr. Harris third. He listened to malicious gossip about Mrs. Garrett, and believed it without even questioning it. He expelled the four girls without ever speaking to them, only relenting when the school dietitian proposed something else . He was not a good school administrator.

I voted for Mr. Crocker last. He seemed slightly insane.

I remember Mrs. Garrett receiving heavy criticism from someone at this board years ago over this. They were adamant that Mrs. Garrett was very manipulative in getting Mr. Bradley to cancel his trip to Hawaii when a student at the school had a personal problem and the housemother there was already tackling it.

I have to say it is a shame that he missed his trip to Hawaii to come back to something that was already cleared up---he probably couldn't get a refund for his ticket $, lol. Poor Mr. Bradley!

Well, at least when he left EE's they did. That was at least some closure.

I was going to say we can't call it "malicious" since it was Tootie who sounded the alarm, and she's not malicious, but, we don't know what the words of the rumor are that Mr. Harris heard from whomever he heard it by the time it go to him, lol.

Hahaha, but he's entertaining---when he tells Nancy what he wants from her in her performance, it's so funny the explicitly detailed mature-actor list he insists she pull off---for some reason it never really hit me, but when I watched TGS last week it caught me off guard and really made me laugh!

I think Mrs. G could manipulate (like in "Rough Housing"), but she used her manipulations for good. I don't think she was trying to ruin Mr. Bradley's trip.

It is a shame he missed his secret honeymoon with Miss Mahoney... or should I say Mrs. Emily Mahoney-Bradley?

Sure, it's funny for a while... but can you imagine actually working for such a man? Being subject to his whims? No way!
