A New Jersey substitute teacher at Cedar Hill School was fired after she told a room full of first graders that Santa Claus is fake.
Superintendent Rene Rovtar released a statement saying that she was “troubled and disheartened” by the incident that could potentially ruin the childhood wonder associated with the holidays.
But for the sake of argument, I will posit to all of you. . . . . Is the Jolly Old Elf real?
I think she should find a lawyer.
I disagree with her actions but you can't really fire a teacher for teaching.
he still brings them gifts on Christmas.
I know Santa Claus is real. He's actually visited our home
However this teacher was fired for not lying.
Sure I'm looking at it very black and white but even including the grays I don't think I could support the phrase...
"Teachers should sometimes lie to their students".

Some kids may have more of a negative impact for believing childish whimsical things for too long
How about adultish whimsical things?
