    Apparently, a teacher was fired for telling her students the truth about there is no Santa Clause.  Gee, whoever would've thought that telling the truth would get you in trouble.  What are your thoughts on this?  here's a video folks for more details:

      Can't pull up the video.

      But no I don't think that's cause for firing.
      It would be more appropriate to fire a teacher who said there's no God.

        im sorry about that brenda.  well, i think it's kind of ridiculous if you ask me to fire this teacher, as these kids were going to figure out the truth sooner or later anyways.

    Another absurdity of law enforcement. It goes to show how ridiculous things are getting.

      Yeah, I think it's kind of stupid to fire a teacher over this crap, as she didn't do anything wrong.  Besides, it's not like the parents weren't going to tell the kids the truth anyways down the road.  It's just ridiculous if you ask me.

    Maybe it wasn't the teacher's job to tell the kids there's no Santa, but firing her is overkill.

    I can see the teacher's side -- parents tell their kids about Santa for 4 or 5 years, then they admit that they were lying all along.

    Doesn't the kid start to wonder what else they've been fibbing about?

    Having children believe in Santa Claus seems more like an indulgence for the parents rather than something that will help the child.

    If I am the principal, I will not fire her/him although I will advice her/him to respect what the family believes.
