Someone expressed the view that the teacher conferences were quiet this year.

For quiet, you can probably read 'no delegate pulled out a megaphone to roar his disapproval during the ritual of the minister's address'.

It's a bit like how a disruptive child gets the whole class a bad name that takes forever to live down.
