Yesterday I posted about a teacher in my child’s middle school who routinely distributes 12 oz cans of Coke and large bags of gummi bears (and sometimes both) to his students as rewards for classroom performance. I also recounted how, when my daughter asked this teacher for permission to go to the water fountain, he instead just turned to his mini-fridge and handed her a can of Coke.
Later my daughter read the post (I’d published it while she was at school yesterday) and told me I’d actually underplayed what was goes on in that classroom. Apparently there was another incident in which this same teacher distributed Popsicles and cups of Häagen-Dazs – and tried to push three of them onto my daughter, who politely declined after just one. And she told me kids sometimes received more than one can of Coke per class period.
