So, we all know about the current budget cuts to the public education system in our state as well as the teacher shortage, but apparently there are way worse things happening to our state’s educators. That’s right. When teachers aren’t spending their own money on school supplies, going without raises, or having their jobs straight up cut, their students are being a real bunch of assholes.
So, what’s going on? Well, in Deer Creek, high schoolers released a ton of ladybugs in their school.
Deer Creek High School officials are investigating a senior prank in which thousands of ladybugs were released into the school.
Officials said a lengthy cleanup was in order after 3,000 to 7,000 ladybugs were on school grounds.
The ladybugs were disposed of in the cleanup.
The Oklahoma County Health Department was called to the school to ensure lunch could be served.
Ladybugs? I guess that’s not so bad. I mean, overall they’re pretty cute, and I think they’re good luck. And they’ll keep your tomato plants aphid-free. And retrospectively, they could’ve released a slew of black widow spiders in the school. This is relatively harmless.
But in Oklahoma City, some middle school students catfished a teacher into giving them some nude photos via social media.
Police are investigating an incident after officials said inappropriate pictures of a school employee were exchanged by students at a metro middle school.
Webster Middle School principal Joey Slate sent a letter to parents Tuesday saying students received a picture of a school employee and have distributed it to other students through text messages and social media.
Authorities have not said how the pictures were originally obtained.
Here’s just a general rule for everyone to follow. If you’re going to send your nude photos to someone via social media, you should assume the person receiving them is in some way nefarious. Like, there are so many naked pictures available via the internet, why would anyone need yours?
But the most stressful thing happened at Bethany Middle School — a student brought a loaded gun.
A student was arrested Wednesday after a loaded gun was brought to a Bethany school, officials said.
The gun was brought to Bethany Middle School, officials said. The principal found a loaded gun inside a backpack.
Police were called at 10:40 a.m. to the school to talk to the student, who tried to flee, authorities said. A struggle ensued, and the student was taken to the Bethany police station.
Loaded guns in public places are my number one fear in life, especially loaded guns in the possession of someone who is emotionally unstable. You know, like a middle schooler. It’s pretty amazing that nothing bad happened with this one.
So what’s next on the agenda for Oklahoma schools? With so few days left in the semester, what thing can we expect our students to do? Teachers, what sort of thing do you fear the most from your students? If I were a public school employee, I’d probably fear that the students were teaming up with budget-cutting legislators to somehow take money out of their Oklahoma Teachers Retirement System account.
