Mayte Lara graduated at the top of her class, as you can tell by her Tweet, but letting the world know that she was in the US illegally was probably not the smartest idea. Some people have voiced their support for Mayte, and say that she is a good example of a hardworking person who is working to better themselves, unlike the stereotypes of undocumented immigrants that people like Donald Trump have been spouting in the current election season. That didn't stop the fact that she got so much backlash on Twitter that she had to close her account. Some of the Tweets looked like this terrible Donald Trump meme:

Some people even reported her to the government.

Leonardo Semma got suspended in January for three days for trolling his school superintendent about snow on Twitter. He waited until graduation to share the incident on Twitter along with his suspension letter and it's now gone viral. He also followed up with an email that was sent to his dad about the above "crowning achievement" Tweet.

Apparently in Germany, kids get to plan their own senior parties. According to the Daily Mail, a stripper was brought in to the school under the guise of making a presentation on "equal rights" but obviously the kids learned about something else that day. The "speaker" came dressed in business attire and started out talking about teacher-student relationships, which she followed up by taking off that business attire and giving a few students a lap dance (as you can see in the video).  

Since everyone in the room and involved was technically an adult and not underage, the teachers allowed the performance to go ahead. We imagine the school's official response to this event looked something like this:

Paula Beare is a math teacher from Toowoomba, Queensland, and her hand written note to Facebook has been shared over 73,000 times. The purpose of this experiment was to develop a mathematical equation for her students that tracked both likes and shares. 

Well, congratulations, Paula Beare, you have become the most popular teacher in the country.

Graeme Whiting, the principal of a British private school suggested that fantasy books like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones (to name a few) can damage the subconscious of a child and cause mental illness. In this longer than necessary blog post he talks about how by the age of 30 he had read all the books he wanted to and that children don't have "thinking brains" until at least the age of 14.  

He prefers that kids stick to the classics that aren't "sensationalized" with tales of magic or anything interesting. 

This has led many critics to ask several questions such as, "Does he seriously think Game of Thrones is for kids?" and "What kind of boring Shakespeare plays is he reading?"

Alex Purdy was looking for life long friendships, support and maybe some philanthropy when she joined her sorority. What she got was a house full of mean girls. When she left Greek life she made this video hoping to inspire change. She says this in the description:

This video is a reflection of my experience in a sorority. I decided to leave last semester and make this video to share my thoughts on how greek life can change for the better. I want to make it clear that all matters are purely my opinion. If you relate to some of the things I said, please share this video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #sororityrevamp to help inspire others to bring sororities back to their roots.


She mentions girls being given weight loss pills to encourage them to lose weight and girls being told to dress more provocatively so that "boys will like them".  Her biggest problem was the lack of compassion her "sisters" had toward each other. So far she's received mostly words of encouragement for her video.
