In Mesa, Arizona, Engligh teacher and cheerleader coach Cristina Mallon has been forced to resign after a YouTube video showed her performing a “seemingly harmless cheer with pompoms.” She got suspended and then bounced after a complaint that a book she assigned — Jake Reinvented — was inappropriate. So, she’s gone.
In Huntsville, Arkansas, teacher Jerick Hutchinson was scheduled to make a presentation to students on how to skin a raccoon, but the parent who was to bring the coon in, brought in a live one in a trap. So Jerick took the raccoon out back and killed it with a nail gun. He stays.
