Teachers and headteachers are people as well, so it’s natural for them to do weird things sometimes. And the reasoning behind their actions might be unclear. Inspired by a Reddit thread about odd stuff teachers do during the class, the Typical Student team listed strange, outrageous, and plain weird things done by educators. Take a look!
#1 Chinese nursery principal welcomes back kids with pole dancer
The incident in the kindergarten in the Chinese city of Shenzhen went viral after a shocked parent has told about it to the news outlet. Turns out, kids were welcomed with a pole dancer’s performance after the holidays. And that was the initiative of the nursery’s headteacher!
The video of the performance was shared on Twitter by a journalist Michael Standaert with a caption: "Who would think that this is a good idea?" Also, he told about his intention to take his children out of the nursery. As a result, an apology for the performance was issued and an official statement saying the kindergarten principal had been dismissed.
