If you have children, please keep an eye on their teachers. My wife and I constantly monitor the goings on at our childrens school as they are constantly whittling away recess or instituting silent lunches. But my children’s school is much better than the morons who are running Scarels Elementary School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
These folks decided to stage a mock attack on the students by a gunman and then told them when they asked if it was true, that it was. How to seriously undermine the respect of the students to any authority figure and at the same time scare the living crap out of them. This incident will leave some scars.
And do you think any of the kids will trust an adult again? If I were them, I sure would not. Hey Jimmy, you are most likely going to die in the next few minutes like the kids at Virginia Tech. Just Kidding. Watch the video of a child and his mother react.
A few heads should roll on this one.
Staff members of an elementary school staged a fictitious gun attack on students during a class trip, telling them it was not a drill as the children cried and hid under tables.
The mock attack Thursday night was intended as a learning experience and lasted five minutes during the weeklong trip to a state park, said Scales Elementary School Assistant Principal Don Bartch, who led the trip.”We got together and discussed what we would have done in a real situation,” he said. But parents of the sixth-grade students were outraged.
During the last night of the trip, staff members convinced the 69 students that there was a gunman on the loose. They were told to lie on the floor or hide underneath tables and stay quiet. A teacher, disguised in a hooded sweat shirt, even pulled on a locked door.
After the lights went out, about 20 kids started to cry, 11-year-old Shay Naylor said. “I was like, ‘Oh My God,’ ” she said. “At first I thought I was going to die. We flipped out.”
Principal Catherine Stephens declined to say whether the staff members involved would face disciplinary action, but said the situation “involved poor judgment.” via CNN.com.
