Can we just stop for a minute and recognize how WTF this picture I found to go along with this article is?
Thank you. Moving on, a teacher is in trouble today for instructing her students to do something that you wouldn’t imagine is a good idea. But it’s sort of funny.
A Roane County kindergarten teacher who reportedly told students to encircle a classmate, call him a pig and make pig noises because the boy is messy, received a one-day unpaid suspension and had a letter of reprimand placed in her file.
The incident involved Debbie Hayes, an educator at Bowers Elementary School who has taught kindergarten in Roane County for 38 years. Dr. Toni H. McGriff, director of Roane County Schools, called the March 16 incident “simply unbelievable.”
In her reprimand letter, McGriff told Hayes she was “appalled with the actions in this situation.” ”It’s a black eye on the profession,” McGriff said Monday. “It’s a black eye on our schools.”
You know, I could see them making a big deal out of this if the kid was fat, but just messy? Didn’t they name a kid in Charlie Brown “Pigpen” because of that? Yeah, I thought so.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
