I could not believe my ears this morning when it was reported that a 3rd grade school teacher left her class in tears after she announced that there is no Santa and there is no Easter Bunny. She then went on to espouse upon these 8 year old children her religious beliefs! It is shocking and shameful!
I don't care how new this woman is to teaching, everyone knows that it is NOT a school teacher's duty to let the proverbial cat out of the bag regarding Santa and the Easter Bunny. What's more, religion is kept out of the classroom for a lot of obvious reasons! If children are at Catholic or Jewish or Muslim school, then one knows what will be taught to one's children. In any other setting, a teacher forcing her religious views on her students is unforgivable and she should be fired for doing so.
