I'm a science teacher. As a student, I was on the rifle team and could bring my gun to school (unloaded) on the bus. I am not unsympathetic to what he was trying to do, but this was just a stupid idea.
Well the principal approved it and sounds like this wasn't the first year. I don't think he should get in trouble over it.
Well that was a dumb thing to do during days like this.
Guns... fired... in a school...
Very educational. I'm sure all those Littleton teenagers are a lot smarter now.
It was a controlled experiment to demonstrate Newtonian laws of motion. They make it sound like he jumped up on the desk and said "Hey, let's see who can dodge the fastest!"
Someone always has to ruin it for everyone. If it isn't the uber or non religious, its some anti-gun person. If you're so concerned about it, keep your kid at home.
God forbid we make school interesting! -_- The concern I would have here is how many rounds he had on him. Any more than 1 that he kept with him would be very unsafe.
In that case the principal's ass should be in the sling, not the teacher's. In a normal world, I wouldn't have an issue with this, but anyone involved in education now had to be able to see this coming from a mile away.
I don't have a problem with it. If it is a controlled experiment then it is fine. Make the class intereseting..
I would have loved a demonstration like this in High School. Taking something from real life and showing how physics really deals with it? That's the way to get a student to really take the topic and make it their own.
while they're at it they should take the knives away from the school chef.
