This is a very disturbing story. Whereabouts are you? (I don't expect you to identify the actual school and therefore the actual culprit - just country or state will do!)

This was actually your deputy head? You quote him as saying "it wasn't really stealing as he wasn't going to buy it anyway so it's not as if anyone was losing any money, and besides, it must have sold millions so they're going to miss a few pounds."

If I had ever used an argument like this in support of an act of theft while I was at school, I would have been expelled, for compounding an act of straightforward dishonesty with dishonest argument.
