You know how some teachers motivate their students by offering to humiliate themselves as a reward? This isn't one of those stories.
--An unnamed fourth-grade teacher in Declo Elementary School in Idaho set accelerated reading goals for the class. The students had to read a certain number of books by November 5th. (--Declois 175 miles southeast of Boise.)
--And as a reward, the students who MET the goal were allowed to scribble on the faces of the kids who DIDN'T . . . with permanent marker.
--Six of the 21 students didn't read enough books . . . and the other 15 scribbled on them with red and green marker. One kid's mother said that the class even wrote on his eyelids. The kids weren't allowed to wash their faces all day.
--Angry parents said that they consider what the teacher did to be supervised bullying. The school is still investigating the incident.
