Brooklyn Teacher Sacked For Telling 1st Graders There Is No Santa

A substitute teacher in Brooklyn recently made the news for telling first graders that Santa and the Tooth Fairy aren’t real.

This leads us all to wonder what’s going on in the world of academia today – where a child’s belief in Santa needs to be shattered.

Parents were outraged at Park Slope school in Brooklyn after their children came home Monday crying because of some substitute teacher who lacks good old fashioned common sense.

One mother told local affiliate News 12:

“It’s three weeks before Christmas.” Adding, “These kids are 6 years old.”

Moreover, she acknowledged that when it comes to Christmas each family may believe in different things: “It’s what makes New York City great. There’s still this magic of childhood.”

The unidentified “grinch” was immediately placed on the “naughty list” according to the principal.

In a letter sent out to parents, the principal says she was extremely upset to hear about what happened. She says they are investigating the staff member and that “…I guarantee you that this substitute will not be in class 1-216 again … we take this very seriously.”

Meanwhile, parents are faced with confused teary-eyed children who were suddenly rousted out of the wonders of childhood, especially at this magical time of the year.

Ironically almost to the day, last year another substitute teacher in New Jersey also decided to destroy the magic of Christmas for children by announcing to 1st grinders that  Santa Claus and his eight reindeer weren’t real.

At the time a stunned Lisa Simek told local reporters that her young daughter was in class at Cedar Hill School in Montville when the substitute teacher suddenly began telling the children “Santa isn’t real and parents just buy presents and put them under their tree.”

Simek continued, “She told them reindeer can’t fly and elves are not real, and elf on the shelf is just a pretend doll that your parents move around. She did not even stop there: the tooth fairy is not real. Because mom or dad just sneaks into your room in the middle of the night and put money under your pillow, the same goes for the Easter bunny.”

“She told them magic does not exist. There is no such thing as magic anything,’’ Simek wrote. “A grown woman tried to crush our 6-year-old’s spirit, along with the spirits of the other 22 kids.”

What’s even more distressful is that these are the individuals we entrust to teach our children. What seems apparent is that the culture within our society has drastically changed from when we were children.

Is it any wonder those teaching our children should also drastically change?
