What the heck was this teacher trying to prove?

According to information released by the 12-year-old-boy’s parents the social studies class was discussing the Pharaohs when they ruled Egypt. The teacher, Lisa Lox, had asked her class would there be a need for laws if there were only one person left on earth. The students all responded with a ‘no’. Then the teacher asked if there would be a need for laws if there were only two people on earth.

All but two students, said there would need to be laws. The two students who disagreed, included the 12-year-old and another student in the class who said they would split the earth evenly.

With that said the teacher then, to possibly help prove a point, asked the girl to give her his textbooks. He did. Then the teacher allegedly told him to take off his clothes. The sixth grader, whose name is not being published on the request of his mother, did including everything but his underwear.

Following, the boy became very upset and according to his mother “suffered an anxiety attack and passed out.”

Where’s Dan Rather when you need him? (Thanks to Skip Oliva for the tip.)

I don’t know what to say. I can’t believe this. If it were April 1st, I wouldn’t believe it.

I guess I’ll just add this to my file on why we homeschool.

Ah Daryl, maybe the teacher just needed more funding for her social studies class to make sure she had everything she needed to teach the class. ( Gee can you buy good judgement?)

BTW, the poor kid was right about not needing laws if there were only two people. Law implies an external government agent to enforce them. Without that, what’s the point. The “lawbreaker” could thumb his nose at the “victim.” Too bad for the teacher there are more than two people in the world now; I have a feeling she’s going to become very familiar with the law.

Would you like to hear the latest on this: Lisa Lox suffered not the slightest legal inconveniance following her unspeakable (in my opinion at least) act against the defenseless child. We now have a young man who will spend the next forty years trying to forget that awful day, and as an adult voter, will probably NEVER support a school tax levy in his home town. Something similar happened to my entire senior class at Cincinnati’s Aiken High School, and after I graduated, I never supported a tax levy from which that school would have benefited, and I never will. Ultimately their school will suffer because of this, as well it should. But tragically, it’s the closest thing to poetic justice this young man will ever see.
