Mesquite ISD Substitute Teacher Fired for Encouraging Students to Fight in Class | Category: General Source
The first rule of fight club is Don’t talk about fight club
I’m concerned that teachers have been unappreciated for so long that the ones we have left to choose from are the kind who promote fight clubs in the classroom.
I feel like this is just one in a long series of bizarre adventures for this guy.
What happened to the pledge that ‘whatever happens in fight class, stays in fight class?’ (checks notes). Ohh, this is Mesquite, Texas! Wranglers gotta wrangle…and this ‘school’ does have a square-dancing class (which I enjoy in my spare time BTW).
Now I’m not one to second guess the fine Mequite school administration but it seems they may have overreacted to this harmless bit of sport. To quote my spirit animal, Foghorn Leghorn, on the merits of education:
‘“Now that, I say that’s no way for a kid to be wastin’ his time, readin’ that long-haired gobbledegook”
Don’t be wasting your time reading all that mumbo jumbo (if you could read).in the library (which has not yet been defunded) high falutin books (except the ones we banned). Fisticuffs is what you need in schools.
And if it please the court (who knows more than the FDA), I enter into the record the following useful fact: ‘Friendship’ was adopted as the Texas state motto in February 1930.
This is Texas, teacher would have been okay if they had organized it as a gunfight at high noon
