Talking Turkey during Snack Time: La La La!

Jeff Soyer points this out:

Jared was sharing a conversation during his free period snack time at school. He was talking with a friend about the recent spring 2008 turkey season. Both boys had been out hunting with their dads and Jared was asking his friend where he had gotten his first turkey.

“Jared’s teacher covered her ears, trying to block the conversation, and singing ‘la la la la.’ When asked by another school employee about her odd behavior, the teacher claimed she did not want to hear about the boys and their ‘killing.’

The teacher switched all snack times in her class to “working” snack times so she could limit what students talked about.

The student’s parents pulled him out of the school and began homeschooling him.

  1. The student’s parents pulled him out of the school and began homeschooling him.’ I just love a story with a happy ending.

  2. Agreed. I try not to bang the homeschooling drum TOO loudly, because I know not everyone buys it or can manage it, but it’s a good thing for those that can and do.
