Try this bullshit:
An Iowa middle school principal has apologized for being “overly strict” after he confiscated pizzas that were delivered to a class for an end-of-the-year party over fears that it could make students from other classes feel left out.
The principal apologized for his actions in a note to parents later that day, writing that he overreacted in an attempt to be fair to all students.
“That applies to everything from the chances they have to learn in the classroom to rewards and recognitions by our teachers and staff.”
I know what I would have learned from this particular classroom: authority figures suck.
And by the way, if you read the whole thing (after first moving guns and/or throwable objects out of reach), you’ll see that the self-righteous prick’s “apology” was no such thing. And:
The situation was made right Friday after Mr. Hoffman said he threw another pizza party for the class and several local businesses also volunteered to donate pizzas for the school’s nearly 750 students.
…thus negating all the incentive for performance — if everyone gets a prize, why bother trying harder? (No doubt that’s the lesson they’re trying to teach the kids.)
As His Excellency The Instapundit says so often: putting kids into the public school system is no less than child abuse.
