An Oklahoma middle school teacher was fired last week for doing something you might do with your punkass cousins but probably shouldn't do if you're certified to teach minors: she put eleven kids in her Honda Accord and locked two of them in the trunk on a mission to find snacks. Snacks are important but they aren't that important, man.
Heather Cagle had been teaching at a middle school in Catoosa, Oklahoma for ten years when she decided to take her yearbook group to Walmart a quarter of a mile away. Not only was she not allowed to take students off campus without permission from their parents, but it was additionally ill-advised to stuff several twelve-year-olds into a car, trunk included. Even if it's just for some Goldfish crackers.
It took five minutes for the students, members of the school's yearbook, to cram into the teacher's Honda Accord, a road trip fail caught on school surveillance video. Two 12-year-old girls made the journey locked in the car's trunk while seven more created a human pyramid in the back seat, the school said.
Kids need snacks but kids don't need to build a human pyramid in order to acquire those snacks.
