We do ask new students to pay for three months in advance, but there is no contract. We did ask you to write letters of apology and take responsibility for your words and actions, but you were never "ordered" to do anything.
You may continue to believe I am not who I say I am and that there is some conspiracy against you if that makes things easier. Good luck in your endeavors.

Payment of three months in advance does constitute a "contract" just to be technical. Depending on how much it is in the jurisdiction/state, it may or may not be required to be in writing. Blah . . . blah . . . FYI. . . .
Carl Rogers was a piss-poor psychologist, and his technique makes for piss-poor discussion.
"I hear you telling me that you want to rip my ass out with a spatula. How does that make you feel?"
As for whether or not he has "taken responsibility for his posts"--he has. He refused to apologize/retract them as was required. He has moved on rather than do the same. Be that as it may, the bottom line is Mr. Jones has left the school, posters and potential students are free to evaluate the rebuttals such as they are, and that is that.

Or to break it down.
A "if you pay for three months in advance, you get to take classes here."
B "I agree, Here is my the three months worth of cash, (consideration)
This is offer and acceptance, with consideration. It is an oral contract as verses a written contract.
Is it legally enforceable? Certainly under normal circumstances if B was only allowed one month of lessons, he could sue for the difference.
Doctor X is correct.

You had no business telling anyone to "take responsibility" for his actions, in writing or not, as long as such a person was not falsely speaking on behalf of your or your school.
In fact, Mr. Jones took responsibility for his own actions, by upholding everything he said and refusing to apologize for something he thought did not warrant an apology.
Supporting your opinions is a huge part of "taking responsibility", Mr. Schutt.
As a matter of fact, what you did was condescending and disrespectful, Mr. Schutt. I do not know the whole story, but I do know adults do not induce one another to apologize for something.
An adult will try to CONVINCE another adult of the wrongness of his or her actions. But just asking someone to write letters of apology, well, that is done to children. When done to an adult, by taking advantage of a social or economic advantage, it is called bullying.
Kindly leave the premises.That civilisation may not sink,
Its great battle lost,
Quiet the dog, tether the pony
To a distant post;
Our master Caesar is in the tent
Where the maps are spread,
His eyes fixed upon nothing,
A hand under his head.
