A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

NOTHING TO CHEER ABOUT

An Arizona high school teacher caught on video performing a sexy cheer routine in front of her class has resigned.


English teacher and cheerleading coach Cristina Mallon was put on administrative leave last month after a student captured her dance on his cell phone and put the video on YouTube.

Mallon elected to resign, according to Highley Unified School District officials, after she returned from her suspension and was put in the spotlight once again when she assigned a controversial book for her freshman students to read. A father complained that "Jake Reinvented" was inappropriate for 14-year-olds.

Guess she's not shaking her pom-poms now.

she wasn't fired, but suspended, then she resigned. I agree, no reason for all the hoopla!

Seems like a waste of managerial effort pursuing this matter.
Couldn't their time be better spent rounding up druggies and pedophiles?

Seems to me; and I've mentioned this before,we've become a nation of over politically correct wimps?We're all afraid of expressing our feelings for fear of offending someone. School children are now suspended for innocent expressions of affection such as a simple hug in a hallway.
Who is driving the bus in this country,the ultra conversative
right winged Evangelical Christians?
....For the Times they are a changin'.
Not all change is a welcomed thing.
Perhaps one day the pendulum will swing back.
Happy Thanksgiving and a Very Merry Christmas to all!!!!
There, I've offended someone out there.
