    Please help

    Hi

    My thoughts are like this.

    At the present moment(now), say 9am.

    At 8am, Tom expressed his thought on an earlier event at 7am.
    At 7am, parents had a dialogue with the school principal about the use of ipad for lessons.

    Could we say now “He(Tom) believed(then) that the parents overreacted when the principal had made the announcement to use ipad for lessons.”

    At the present moment, say 9am.

    At 8am, Tom expressed his thought on an earlier event at 7am.
    At 7am, parents had a dialogue with the school principal about the use of ipad for lessons. Parents were upset.

    Could we say (now) “He (Tom) believed (then) that the parents had been upset by the principal’s announcement to use ipad for lessons.”

    Thank you

    It rather depends when the principal made his announcement.
