Teachers convince sixth graders gunman is on the loose

What the hell were these teachers thinking??

Teachers stage fake gunman attack on sixth graders

Apparently, it was just a "prank"...

School district says fake gun attack was a prank

I can't believe that a teacher and associate principal would think this is okay to do to a group of kids.

I read about this a few days ago. They should lose their credentials for this.

It's not just stupid, it's cruel. Those poor kids, they had to have been terrified!

How is it possible in this day and age to exercise such poor judgment?

Rono, I teach the same grades these idiots terrorized. "Experienced" doesn't mean good.

Well, to be honest, especially after my experience at VT, I would go out of my way to make sure that none of my children would end up in any school/classroom of these teachers. That was absolute crap. I wouldn't trust anyone who was in the meeting room saying "oh this is such a good idea!" as far as I can throw them.

I know I can't stop all the violence in the world from happening, but I wouldn't want anyone to experience the chaos I did. Not even as a stupid prank. If they can't be more empathetic about this situation, what in the world are they doing teaching kids? I certainly would not feel comfortable with such people being responsible for inspiring and enlightening children.

it's possible that these teachers had good intentions and thought that by doing this they would prepare the students in case it ever really did happen... but to carry it out as if it were a real attack and not give any notification that a drill was taking place is stupid on such a level that they should not be allowed to educate students ever again.

if it were, in fact, nothing more than a prank that they thought would be funny? they should probably go to jail for something... causing a mass panic has to be a crime somewhere.
