    If the MSM are going to highlight every time a home educating family “goes bad,” I’m going to do the same with the g-school teachers:

    A chemistry teacher who was at least three months behind on her car payments gave passing grades to two failing students who stole and burned her car so she could collect insurance money, a fire investigator said.

    …The teens initially thought her scheme was a joke, but Fox continued to pursue them, Deutsch said. On May 27, the last day of school, the students took the unlocked 2003 Chevrolet Malibu from a shopping mall, drove it to a wooded area and set it on fire, he said.

    Fox reported the theft that day, after already having bought a 2005 Toyota Corolla, investigators said. She owed about $20,000 on the Chevrolet and had been facing repossession, Deutsch said.

    Too strange. And how does someone who’s three months behind in her car payments manage to buy a brand new car? Don’t they do credit checks anymore?

    New math…that’s how. 😉

    I’m not sure you have the time or server space for all the teachers gone bad. Who was it that used to send out the weekly e-letter listing all the reasons Why We Homeschool? It was a very sad list…except that she managed to throw in great comments.

    If you are going to start reporting on teachers gone bad, we’ll never see anything else in your blog. Months ago someone made the comment that putting the two words “teacher guilty” in google news produced a scary list of articles. Here’s a link:

    “Teacher charged” works even better.
