Teacher Fired For Not Noticing Third Graders Having Oral Sex In Classroom
A teacher in Tallulah, Louisiana, has been fired this week because she failed to notice that two of her students were engaged in oral sex underneath a desk right there in the classroom.
But this wasn't a high school, or even a middle school. The alleged incident occurred at Tallulah Elementary School, and the kids in question were third graders.
So you can excuse the teacher for worrying more about preventing hair-pulling and spitball-making than oral sex.
Should she have noticed something like that going on in her classroom? Well, yeah, obviously.
But again, suppose you were the teacher, and it's been a hard week. You might zone out for a bit while the kids work on an assignment quietly, figuring as long as you don't hear any whispering or yelling, everything is more or less okay. Because, after all, these are 9-year-olds. What could they possibly be getting up to? Snorting coke and having sex?
Well, yes, apparently.
Of course, we don't know how all of this went down. Maybe the teacher was a lot more negligent than that, and actually left the class completely unattended for 10 or 15 minutes. All we do know is that the school's principal fired her immediately, and the district superintendent agreed with the action.
As for the students involved in the age-inappropriate encounter, the district says they are currently undergoing counseling.
Um, yeah, ya think?
