“Is this gonna be on the final?”

Three students have been expelled from Bay Minette Middle School in Alabama for showing a porn film – on a DVD – in their social studies class. 

While the teacher was in the room.

One of the parents, of course, is outraged that her kid is being punished, but not the teacher.  According to the story, "…the film was played for 30 minutes while the teacher remained at her desk, her back to the class."  Excuse me?  This went on for half an hour?

If this woman's son did indeed bring this filth into school, he should, of course, be punished.  Severely.  But, if this teacher did indeed sit with her back to the class for thirty minutes while this went on, perhaps the teacher should be held partially responsible as well. 

That's putting it mildly.

Somebody needs a little extra help with reading comprehension, apparently. 

Ouch.
