Stupid Teachers Do Stupid Things

While shootings on public school campuses get plenty of media attention, I dare say that well over 99% of our students will never face such a situation.

Why, then, would teachers want to stage a fake attack, and then try to justify it as a learning experience?

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.
