JUST HEARD ON TV:
A substitute teacher in New Jersey won't be asked back next semester because she told the students that St. Nick is not real. This cause such uproar eith the parents that the school's principal terminate her services.
Seriously, depending on the grade, most teachers wouldn't have done that. That is the parents realm on how long they want their child to believe in that magic. We did the Santa myth with our kids until they had figured it out. And the older girls let their little sister believe in it for longer than they did. Childhood is about magic and innocence. If that was a Kindergarten teacher and my kid I'd have wanted to kick her ass. Now a second grader, maybe not. But that is the privilege of the parents. And the time to blab is AFTER Christmas for pete's sake. You don't burst the bubble before the date. Was it really a firing offense... depends on what else is in her file.
