People Shared the Biggest Scandals That Took Place at Their Schools

Here are the two big scandals that I remember happening when I was in high school…

One, a kid got stabbed in the hallway during a fight my Freshman year.

And two, a girl got pregnant Senior year and mysteriously never came back to school one day…that’s all I can really think of right now. I’m sure there was a lot more going on, but that’s what I was aware of at the time.

But we’re about to hear a bunch of crazy stories from high school on Twitter, thanks to this person who threw the big question out there.

Let’s get scandalous, shall we?

1. A secret affair.

Well, I guess it worked out?

2. That is insane.

More details, please!

3. Bet he didn’t see that coming.

Rubber stamped!

4. You definitely couldn’t do this anymore.

You’d be in deep sh*t if you tried a stunt like this.

5. True ’80s style.

Kinda weird…

6. The Branch Davidians.

That’s pretty nuts.

7. That is terrible.

A true crime story.

8. The hitman and the nun.

This person needs to write a book.

9. Don’t talk about it.

But everyone knew…

10. An odd turn of events.

Shouldn’t have taken that coat.

11. That sure is awkward.

Kids, meet your new stepmother.

How about you?

What was the biggest scandal that took place at your school?

Give us all the dirt in the comments! Thanks in advance!

Parents Who Have Totally Had It With Distance Learning

Distance learning is one of those things no one asked for, but everyone is getting it these days anyway. Like socks for Father’s Day, or a gift certificate for a pedicure somewhere that’s not your place, if you’re a woman.

We’re all doing our best, which is better some days than others – but these 18 parents are really just ready to chuck it all right in the bin.

18. A truer GIF has never been shared.

Screaming is accurate, too.

17. We hear what we hear.

It’s probably not what the teacher said.

Distance learning from memes

16. I didn’t know we had to dress for school, too.

I haven’t dressed for anything in months.

15. We were hoping to keep that a secret for awhile longer.

Not forever. But longer.

14. I have never felt so old.

Good thing I’m Gen X, and therefore do not care.

13. Precious, aren’t they?

I wish I could tell people to mute themselves in real life.

12. Imagine feeling this so hard you wrote it on your car.

I mean, maybe you don’t have to imagine.

11. It had to be someone.

Thanks for taking the hit.

10. Only one kid is allowed to freak out at once.

I’m sorry, that’s just the rule.

9. Spoiler alert: they’re never leaving.

The “breaks” aren’t for you.

8. Probably the best you could hope for, honestly.

At least it doesn’t include profanity.

7. We had fun though, right?

Honey? Right?

6. Just mind your business, full stop.

It’s the only way to go.

5. Every dang time.

Why are they like this?

4. Who knocks on the door?

That shouldn’t be allowed currently.

3. Is that all?

Because it feels like at least double.

2. Wait some people are sleeping?

How are they making that happen?

1. Sometimes you have to butt in.

There’s just no other option.

How is distance learning going for you?

If you can tell us without weeping into your wine glass, please do!

We’re all trying our hardest right now to patch together something that looks like a normal life. We’re doing online or hybrid school, we’re working from home, we’re wearing masks, we’re explaining as best as can to our kids.

And so, without further ado, I present to you 11 hilarious moments that never would have been possible without online school.

11. A romance for the ages.

You gotta make do.

If you taught him to be so clever.

I’m dying, and thankful that we’re still all able to laugh.

But I think we’ll all still be thankful and ready when things finally go back to “normal.”

People Share Their Really Bad Teacher Stories

There are more good teachers than bad ones, but as with every profession, there are a certain number who have burned out, eaten from the wrong apple, or just plain never should have gone into teaching to begin with.

And while we’re usually all about praising the amazing teachers who keep our lives running smoothly, today we’re showcasing some Twitter responses to the question: tell me your bad teacher story.

11. The best revenge is living well.

But seriously who says that to a kid?

10. I actually think this is illegal.

Also, gross.

9. This is straight up appalling.

What on earth is wrong with straight men??

8.That is six kinds of wrong.

I hope her mother went off.

7. I cannot believe this is a thing that still happens.

Prison is the place for them.

6. She just…denied a medical condition?

Like? I don’t even know what to say.

5. Even if you don’t get it at home…

Why does anyone think this is okay?

4. This makes my blood boil.

Punishing kids for being too good?

3. I want to have words with this woman.

None of them are nice.

2. I suppose there are probably rules about toys and school.

Lame rules.

1. That’s not how biology works.

This man was a TEACHER.

I’m appalled, though I’m not sure why I’m surprised.

10 Teachers Who Are Very, Very Bad at Their Jobs

Usually, you hear about all of the great, amazing, above-and-beyond stuff that teachers do in service of our kids’ educations every single day.

In every job, though, you will find the people who are definitely in it for the wrong reasons, and it’s appalling to read about the kind of damage they can do.

We’re supposed to be able to trust our teachers, but these 10 kids found out far too early that’s not always true.

10. Why do some people think they know better than doctors?

Like…so many people.

9. It’s called consequences.

No sympathy here.

8. Ask her how many languages she speaks.

I’m guessing one.

7. I’d say that earns the kid a pass.

That teacher should get his or her a$s kicked.

6. I would like to smack this lady straight upside her head.

How many Black kids have similar experiences?

5. What on earth is this nonsense?

Except truly awful?

4. I wonder if she brought some aloe for the burn?

This had to be so satisfying.

3. Both of these are bad.

Only one is criminal, though.

2. What a trash human.

Throw him away.

1. It’s disgusting.

I’m sad that it’s also not uncommon.

I want to find some of these people and slap them silly!

Share your terrible teacher story with us in the comments – I want to be BIG mad.

Graduated Alone

Eva Mae Bradbury was the only member of her graduating class at the public school in Ada, Kansas. The school nevertheless put on a full commencement program for her, attended by 150 people, which was about the entire population of Ada.

This Teacher Is Fighting Back After Her District Banned Pride Flags in the Classroom

Flags are a staple of classrooms. American flags, of course, but also usually a state flag. Sometimes the school flag, other times a military flag of some sort, or a college banner, if the teacher is a proud alum.

There don’t seem to be many rules (as long as one is not trying to fly, say, a Nazi or Confederate flag), but even so, this Nevada school district took it upon themselves to ban Pride flags from their classrooms (along with any perceived political speech).

One teacher in the Washoe County School District in Reno, Jennifer Leja, is speaking out against the new policy. She’s the only openly LGBTQ teacher at her school, and sees herself as a point person for students who are looking to explore their own identities.

She keeps a Pride flag in her classroom, along with an assortment of other rainbow paraphernalia that students have given her, as she just really likes rainbows – and is proud of who she is.

This year, though, a new, district-wide policy banning “partisan political activities” during school hours meant that her Pride flag had to go back in the closet.

Seeking to clarify, Leja reached out to Trustee Andrew Caudill to clarify whether or not the policy included LGBTQ issues, and if it was ok for her to talk about her personal sexuality at school.

She received this email in response:

“The courts have held LGBTQ+ issues to be political speech and thus, the rainbow flag [is considered] to be political speech, so it cannot be expressed through clothing and other means, such as displaying a flag in your class.

Who you are is not impacted by this policy, only what is expressed in class through visual aids.”

For Leja and other people who identify under the LGBTQ banner, their sexuality is not political.

“The issue I have with it is, I don’t think my existence and my identity is a political issue. I think that being able to have a rainbow flag is as much a part of my identity as anything else. It’s legal in every state to get married; it’s legal for LGBT people to exist in this country right now, so I don’t see how it’s a political issue.”

She’s not just fighting for herself, either, she told Buzzfeed News.

“It’s important for me because I feel like there are students who spend their lives in the closet and especially in middle school; that is when students are starting to figure out where they are.

They go through that time period where they don’t know who they are or what they like.”

Leja posted about the issue on TikTok, and though many, if not most, people agree with her stance, the District Trustee remains firm in his response that the policy doesn’t target LGBTQ issues, but includes “other kinds of speech such as Pro-Life, Pro-Choice, NRA, etc.,” and saying the district believes a government entity shouldn’t be seen as taking sides politically.

My response to this new requirement 😂 #tiktokteacher #middleschool #teachersoftiktok #lgbt #lgbtqteacher

He did stress to Buzzfeed, though that Leja is not being asked to hide her identity on or off campus.

“But I want to be abundantly clear, the policy does not require staff to hide their own sexuality.

Teachers can let students know their sexuality, or mention their significant others, if they wish, regardless of sexuality.

The policy does not impact who a teacher is, it only impacts the advocacy for a specific political position.”

Teachers are also not allowed to take a stance on Black Lives Matter, a policy that has drawn criticism and petitions from students and teachers alike.

A Kindergarten Teacher Shows the Struggle to Keep Kids Engaged Online

Teachers have had a lot to deal with this year – even more than the rest of us, I dare say.

They’ve been forced to shift from the in-person learning model for which they trained, and that they’ve taught for their entire careers, to one that’s exclusively, or partially, taught online.

Her first video has been watched more than 7 million times and also shared on other platforms like Twitter.

In it, the teacher reveals how much energy and enthusiasm is required to get her littles to respond to lessons over Zoom, and intermittently holds up a laminated microphone to show them when to turn theirs on to respond

@kenziiewenz

my facial expressions trying to keep kindergarteners engaged in online learning #onlineschool #fyp #teacher

♬ original sound – Mackenzie

And while all teachers are struggling, those with the youngest of pupils are facing special challenges. How does one teach a kindergartener about school through a computer screen? How to you keep little minds engaged without being able to reach out and touch them, to gently redirect, to control their environment?

The answer is you can’t, and kindergarten teachers like the one who made this TikTok are having to come to grips with that – and fast.

I mean… can you imagine doing this stuff?

@kenziiewenz

thanks for all the kind words about teachers 💛 in case anyone wanted to stay on kindergarten TikTok here’s a lesson from today #onlineschool

Or this?

@kenziiewenz

snake motion for the “s” sounds and pig nose for “p” sounds 🙂 Adding a motion to a letter sound helps in so many ways!! #kindergarten #teacher

♬ original sound – Mackenzie

People online, including some news celebs had things to say about Kenzi…

The biggest takeaway is that the teacher much be freaking exhausted at the end of her lessons for the day, but also, it’s clear that students aren’t getting an optimal experience through the computer.

Parents, watch this before you email your child’s teacher the next time. There’s a 99% chance they’re trying their best, they’re exhausted, and they wish things would go back to “normal,” too.

So please, be kind.
