Teacher accused of helping 'dumb as hell' kids cheat8/29/2012
A teacher in Atlanta is out of a job after a tribunal found she helped students cheat. Former fifth-grade math teacher Shayla Smith was accused of offering students answers during a test she was supervising. Another teacher reported that she overheard Smith telling their teacher afterward, "I had to give your kids the answers because they're dumb as hell." To be fair, it sounds like they weren't her students, so maybe she was saying more about the other teacher's aptitude than the kids'? At any rate, Smith was charged with willful neglect and immorality, and has lost her job. Who's dumb now, huh? [Source]
