Bah-Humbug! Would Ebenezer Scrooge be this mean? Parent’s of some second grade students in upstate New York are pretty upset that their children’s teacher informed her class that Santa does not exist.
Last Tuesday, during a geography lesson, a few students informed the teacher they knew where the North Pole was because Santa lived there. Apparently she clued them in that not only was the big guy in the red suit not real, but their parents were actually in on the conspiracy and the ones who had been up on the roof on Christmas Eve.
Nanuet Union Free School District superintendent Mark McNeill said,”This matter is being addressed internally.”
The parents apparently were outraged. I am guessing that this second grade teacher will not be receiving any of those unique, high end gifts that she normally receives each year.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think this teacher was right to be honest when the children started discussing Santa Claus in relationship to the North Pole? If not, should the teacher receive any type of formal reprimand?
