Talking to first graders about the Sandy Hook tragedy is a pretty daunting task, especially when you're their teacher and you're pretending to shoot them

Teacher pretended to shoot kids during Sandy Hook game

In light of the spate of horrible campus shootings, schools across the country are understandably on-edge. So it probably isn’t the smartest decision to teach a group of first-graders about the Sandy Hook shootings by playing a game in which you pretend to shoot them. That ill-advised game is what led to the recent suspension of a teacher at The Odyssey School in Newnan, Ga. The teacher, who is a middle school band director, was filling in as a sub for a first-grade P.E. class when he decided he would have the kids play hide-and-seek and pretend shoot some of them. Yeah, not the best idea. The suspended teacher will have to undergo training, while the kids have been offered counselling. [Source]
