A Massachusetts substitute teacher wanted to ensure that his students got a higher education, literally.
The New York Post reported that the students told the principal about their wild experience and of course he was fired on the spot. Principal Peter Haviland of North Attleboro High School referred to the incident as “entirely unexpected and unprecedented” and reassured that this isn’t “a reflection” of the school’s culture.
“The quick actions of the students to report their concerns is an accurate reflection of the values of this school and community and serves as comforting evidence demonstrating that our students share and uphold these common values of safety and appropriateness within our school,” he added.
There’s no telling what events led the teacher to light a joint right in class but it’s being investigated. It’s unclear if he will be charged for his bold move. “We are proud of our students and grateful to them for the level of maturity and courage they showed during this unfortunate and unprecedented experience,” the principal added.
The unnamed man isn’t allowed on school grounds for “any reason” and unsurprisingly, would not be allowed to work for the department of education.
