Principal busts fifth-graders for March Madness brackets3/15/2012
While most of America is checking and rechecking how they're doing in the NCAA office pool, Max Kohll and his pals will have to sit this one out. The 11-year-old Nebraskan got sent to the principal's office this week for organizing a pool among school friends. The rules were simple: Just five bucks got you in. The winner would take half, and second and third place would split the rest. Sweet, right? Instead, Max and his fifth-grade classmates got a good talking-to from the principal. "You can't gamble in school," Max said afterward, the Omaha World-Telegram reports. "It's not OK to gamble. It's like, illegal, sort of." Tell that to the rest of the world.
