A Utah mother, Danielle Stark, changed a photo of a woman and a dog having sex by adding a 13 year old girl's head to the dog's face. Stark was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor.
I'm seeing double! How uncanny! 19 sets of twins, though not all identical, graduated high school this year in New York. Though specifically Baker High School who had 12 sets of twins graduate broke a Guinness Book Record originally set by a Massachuettes high school who had 10 set of twins graduate at the same time.
Dan Pink on what motivates us. Great talk and awesome animation. Anyone know someone who can make animations like this?
Timbaland and Dr. Dre returned to high school and performing, making some California students happy.
It's happening again. Kids wearing scandalous clothes and getting in trouble for it. This time the garment piece was an American flag shirt.
For only $995,000 you can own your very own school. But what is so odd about this sale is that the community wants to keep the gym and sell the rest. Would you want it without the gym? Is it a deal or a no deal?
Disney making another movie focused around high school, actually the follow up to High School Musical 3, only with new faces (but we love Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens!).
And this time it's about one night that is most or...the least memorable, the prom.
Eric Duquette, who was diagnosed with Autism and couldn't speak until age 5, gets the last laugh as he is honored for being the Salutatorian for his 2010 graduating class.
Teachers thought a G.I. Joe filled hat promoted violence and was against the school's violence code when he was only trying to support and honor U.S. troops.
Violence, violence and more violence at schools, but this murder didn't happen at school, but happened at home because of a divorce spat. The husband stabbed killed his wife, who happens to be a school teacher, to death.
Go Foxes! Parties are supposed to be fun, and a school mascot would lighten up anyone's day, but not here. A real fox attacked a child at an England high school while he was attending another child's birthday party.
"How can an African American person, evolve from a white person? I mean, we're different skin."
It's actually the other way around my friend.
The girl at the beginning who says something along the lines of, it's impossible for us to evolve from such a simple organism... What if you showed students a vector drawing, and they said, it's impossible for that to come from a mathematical equation? Would that mean it's impossible?
So much about science seems like magic or impossible -- thats the beauty and excitement of it all. These kids are genuinely curious -- this teacher, instead of teaching them, fails to take this opportunity to help move their mindsets forward and use their questions as the basis for experiment and learning.
Have any of you folks run into this? How would you leverage this as an opportunity for learning?
A mysterious box showed up at an L.A. high school that had wires coming out of it. Thankfully, the box diclosed nothing harmful as feared, but school administrators were suspicious, thinking a bomb was enclosed.
A student from a Menlo Park middle school, was accused of detonating a bomb. Police say the bomb was made out of things purchased at a local hardware company. Apparently, anyone can make bombs now a days...
What ever happened to freedom of speech? A teacher cut out one student was cut out from the pages of the yearbook because of what the student said about the principal; he falsely accused the principal of spending money on a fence instead of textbooks. But administrations is gladly paying the cost to make corrections, and
Parents in Washington no longer have to pay for the secluded single sex classes that private school can offer. But the good thing is that this is a choice for the students if they feel they will be more comfortable with their own gender.
A student from a NJ school was charged for stealing over $35,000 in computers. He, so obviously, pushed the laptop cart towards the door containing all the materials. He was caught and arrested, after a struggle, having run from the police.
Graduation is a day of applause and congratulations for all students and their endeavors, but one teacher refuses to honor her students, specifically referring to them enlisting in the military. During graduation, she protested war, waving a sign that read "END WAR."
The Roosevelt Middle School class went to Mauthe Lake as a fun trip away from the classroom to cool off for the day. Later in the day, an unnamed chaperon noticed a boy missing, who was found at the bottom of the lake. He was taken to the hospital, but was unable to be revived.
What people do in bathrooms? They pee, they wash their hands... Oh what else do they do? Assault others...
A 31-year old man grabbed and assaulted a 10th grader at Nepean High School in Ottawa. The girl kicked, screamed, and then ran out of the school, despite no injuries. The man confessed a day later and is being charged.
A love triangle at school turns bloody...and deadly when one third of the trio turned murderous.
After the 48-year-old teacher's 21-year-old fiancee found out about her affair, her fiancee stabbed her 18-year-old lover and student to death. Sounds like a "normal" day at school...minus the murder...
Drugs never solved anything, but shifts one's perspective. And in this case, it's no different. Undisclosed drugs were the reason a Kentucky middle school teacher crashed and killed an elderly woman. The young teacher was arrested and charged with murder for the fatal act. This sends a clear message: don't do drugs.
Gay best friends,Charlie Ferrusi and Timmy Howard, won Prom Queen and King! They won by such a wide margin that there were no runners up close to their votes. The couple got approval from their principal, but struggled to decide who would be queen and who would be king.
They say "Welcome to Hollywood"... but this time, they're saying "Please rescue me from Hollywood!" From Hollywood High School's broken Ferris wheel anyway, where at least 10 passengers sat stranded on the broken ride. Firefighters rescued all the ride goers. using a 100 foot aerial ladder as a crane to lower the riders to the ground. No injuries were reported.
What to do when in doubt and you need to land a plane because of engine problems? You land it in a middle school football field. It's practical because it's open space, but what about all the kids? No issue with that this time around because it was early in the morning and students did not arrive yet.
The wheels on the bus go round and round...even when its upside down.
In Oceanside, a school bus crashed into a car, causing the bus to tip. The crash caused 9 injuries, nothing major. However, the police say it is unclear who caused the crash.

Despite President Obama's high status and inspirational words, he still managed to put one graduate asleep during his commencement speech at Kalamazoo High School.
NY teen, Christopher Franko, didn't learn the first time the consequences of plotting an attack against his high school. In addition to the consequences, he was thankfully unsuccessful. The second time he was just as unsuccessful, but drew another plotter, Dana Saltzman, in on the trouble. They planned to shoot the school guards, then as many students as possible, then police, then themselves. They were arrested with no bail and face heavy jail time.
Former high school principal and volleyball coach pleaded not guilty to molesting four teen girls. These girls played on the volleyball team he coached.
He attempted to leave the US to go to the Philippines, but LA detectives caught him just in time and arrested him a Los Angeles International Office before he left. He faces maximum 8 years in prison if found guilty.
A single alligator invaded Tampa Middle School! Thankfully, the gator was found before school, caught and taken away before students arrived at school. But oddly, the unwelcomed guest was probable because the school is near a river that had many alligators in it.
What can a roof handle? A little rain? Yeah, most of the time. Snow? Yeah, maybe. A tornado? Apparently not. A tornado swept through an Ohio High school, tearing the roof off the gym where the the 2010 graduation was to take place. Instead the commencement took place at a nearby community college.
Councilman, Steve Blair, criticized Miller Valley Elementary School because the mural depicted black children who were bigger than the rest. Originally, the Arizona principal was going to lighten the skin of the students, but decided against it because he felt it had nothing to do with race.
A mix of automobiles and a game with an offensive title doesn't sound like a good combo...it sounds dangerous. The game students created was named "Beat the Jew." It was modeled after Nazism. One willing student would be the "Jew" who would be left stranded on the highway and blind folded. The Nazis would try to capture or tackle the "Jew"...
Peace. We're traveling back to the 1960s... Pinewood Middle School students in Kentwood are making a peace garden. The garden will be shaped like a peace sign, and despite the heat, students enjoy this break from normal class work. Students got to learn about soil and water and how humans react to their environments. The school's ultimate hope is that this peace garden will influence the students to be pacifists.
Aren't kids going to school now a days? Numbers of enrolled students for an Illinois middle school dropped by nearly 1,000 children. But no, it's not that they're not going, it's that there's not as many as there was, couples just made about 1,000 less babies than years prior. Administrators aren't scared though because this means more individualized attention per student.
Inappropriate dress, short skirts, revealing tops, tight jeans, is all the rave for middle school students, so Leland Middle School has implimented stricter dress codes. Students can only wear khakis with polos. Clothes have to fit properly and cannot be too revealing.
Former NJ Teacher admits molesting his 13-year-old student more than a decade ago. Honest, yes, but this confession isn't all its cut out to be... he didn't freely plead guilty. Instead, police tapped his phone and recorded him confessing his sexual relations to the now 21-year-old victim.
Two students and three parents rejected the idea of holding graduation in a church. They didn't want the government to endorse religion upon them, their children or other nonbelievers. The federal judge ruled in favor with them, so that Enfield High School and Enrico Fermi High School will not be allowed to have their graduations at First Cathedral.
Teen dating is rocky as ever... this statement seems especially when dating a sex offender, who previously lured little girls with Yu-Gi-Oh cards. 18-year-old, Jose R. Reyes, dated and later raped a 14-year-old disabled girl. Police arrested him and his bail is $100,000.
Children sometimes like to bring toys to school, a video game system or a doll, but a second grader brought a pellet gun to school. The school was brielfy put on lockdown, but thankfully the students informed teachers immediately and the boy didn't bring any pellets with it.
Man exposed himself to elementary school children at the playground. The article cryptically says he was "doing his business"... He currently is being charged for this lewd act.
Superglue got pranksters at Pioneer High School in a super sticky situation...if they get caught, of course. But in this case, students didn't use the adhesive properly, they didn't glue anything together! Students used toothpicks to put superglue in the locks on the classroom doors, so students and teachers could not enter or exit. It's also sticky for the school because this prank will cost $15,000 to repair.
Snow is still on the brain at Grand Prairie middle school in this summer weather. Students had to make up school after an excessive snow fall that caused classes to be canceled because of severe power loss. Making up school on memorial day interfered many's holiday plans, despite the school's low attendance for the day.
Instead of finding discarded school supplies or misplaced soccer balls outside school, passerbyers found a 76-year-old woman lying dead at the entrance of Westlake Middle School in Oakland on this Monday, memorial day. Surveillance cameras caught her acting disoriented before she died...what a way to spend a holiday...
