People Reveal Reasons Their Teachers Got Fired

Students usually remember teachers for one of two reasons: they were either excellent or terrible. The great teachers do more than teach their subject; they believe in their students, give them life skills, and inspire them to be the best versions of themselves. The inadequate teachers do just the opposite and can cause irreparable damage to the confidence and growth of a student who may be struggling. And then you have the teachers who are SO bad that they got fired. Whether it's for sleeping with a student or embezzling school money, there's always one who thinks they'll get away with it. An AskReddit thread has got people sharing the reasons their teachers were fired, and the responses are so shockingly sad, it's a wonder how they even qualified to become teachers in the first place.

Plenty of us regularly dabble in the daily clandestine efforts of keeping that 'Clash of Clans' or 'Geometry Dash' or 'Candy Crush' on lock; and don't even think about reminiscing over the risk that went into trying to pull up a game at work or in the chambers of a lecture hall on the good 'ol laptop.


A quick look back at high school, and it seems something of a crying shame so many teachers were so adamant about shutting down that handheld/laptop entertainment. But I mean hey, kids gotta' learn right?


Well, it turns out students at Games High School in Norway pretty much have it made.


The Norwegian public high school in the city of Bergen, Norway plans to roll out an official school administered e-sports academics program.


Students enlisted in the program will devote five hours a week to playing games at school. The classes will include 90 minutes of physical training, which will be fine tuned for the e-games, and also incorporate reflex, strength, and endurance training exercises.


The school hasn't reached a final decision yet on which games its students will study, but there's talk about first-year games candidates being, 'Dota 2,' 'League of Legends,' 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive,' and 'Starcraft II.'

Break-In of the Day: Bear Sneaks Into Montana High School to Make New Friends

Every Montana resident deserves a quality education—even the bears!

A very large black bear broke in to Bozeman High School in Montana early Wednesday morning. The bear was clearly looking to better itself with an education, but police and school officials weren't having it.

After running around the halls for a bit, the bear was chased off by police. No students or staff were injured in the incident.

But students and alumni were pretty stoked.

High school girls wear the scarlet letter to protest a dress code.

These high school students gave themselves an 'A', a scarlet one.

Frustrated by the Charleston County School of the Arts' dress code, finding it demeaning and sexist, students decided to take matters into their own hands.

Post and Courier gives the details:

Reese Fischer, a junior creative writing student at the school who helped organize the protest, said she doesn't oppose the dress code. But, based on her experience, faculty members enforce the dress code more strictly against girls than boys, and against heavy-set girls than smaller girls, she said.

"Especially in the summer, you see guys walking around in muscle tank tops with half their sides hanging out and their pants hanging down, and they don't get called out for that," Fischer said. "They don't get called out for wearing a hat, but a girl will get called out for a short skirt in a second."

...School of the Arts' dress code states that "appropriate, decent and non-distracting attire must be worn" and prohibits hats indoors, exposed underwear, bare skin "between upper chest and mid thigh," shoulder straps less than two fingers wide, and clothing that features inflammatory or profane messages. Students who break the dress code can be sent to an administrator's office and told to change into a school-owned T-shirt and sweatpants.



So Fischer put out a call to action on Instagram last week.



Her post read:

Hi! As many of you heard, there's a new dress code policy being enforced as of tomorrow that will require students to leave class and sit in the office until their dress code violation is 'dealt with'. Also, for a teacher to send you to the office they do not have to dictate whether or not you're in dress code, [they just have to] simply question it. Many students find it incredibly offensive that their outfits are being held at a higher importance than their education. ...

Tomorrow, Sept. 24, it would be awesome if we could get as many people as possible to incorporate a red 'A' into their outfits, as the red 'A' is a famous symbol for 'sin.' We'll keep this page updated as frequently as possible so that the movement is cohesive and effective. Thank you for standing up for what's fair (that everyone should be treated with equal respect).



Post and Courier said the protest went very well.



Fischer said that on the first day of the protest last Thursday, about 100 students — as well as some faculty — wore a homemade red A on their clothing, sometimes as part of a slogan, "Not A Distraction." The red letter A is a reference to the Nathaniel Hawthorne novel "The Scarlet Letter," in which 17th-century Puritans force a young woman to wear the letter after finding her guilty of adultery.



A week in, and students are still adding the letter to their clothes.







Way to find a civil way to stand up for yourself and get your point across!
