At Center Elementary School 3rd Grade in South Georgia Its About Reading, Writing and Plotting to Attack your Teacher
A group of third graders at Center Elementary School in south Georgia plotted to attack their teacher because she had previously had scolded one of them for standing on a chair. You read that correctly. At Center Elementary 3rd grade, its not about just reading writing and arithmetic … its about plotting to harm your teacher with a knife, handcuffs and duct tape as well.
What on earth is going on? We cannot hang this one on the schools … this is on the parents. What are you teaching little Johnny and Mary at home that they think this is suitable behavior?
WAYCROSS, Ga. (AP) — A group of third-graders plotted to attack their teacher, bringing a broken steak knife, handcuffs, duct tape and other items for the job and assigning children tasks including covering the windows and cleaning up afterward, police said Tuesday.
The plot involving as many as nine boys and girls at Center Elementary School in south Georgia was a serious threat, Waycross Police Chief Tony Tanner said.
School officials alerted police Friday after a pupil tipped off a teacher that a girl had brought a weapon to school. Tanner said the students apparently planned to knock the teacher unconscious with a crystal paperweight, bind her with the handcuffs and tape and then stab her with the knife.
