You're kidding, right? I love this quote: "'I feel like no matter what I do or say now, the seed of doubt has been planted in Hayley's head,' Shea said. 'I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to undo it, and Christmas is everything in my family.'"
Ummm, Shea, Hayley's going to figure it out (eventually, I hope). Also, I really hope to plant the "seed of doubt" into my children; I don't want them to become mindless robots who never question or are skeptical of anything said to them.
Sadly, the article ends this way: "School officials said they would send a Santa Claus, complete with a natural, full, white beard, into the classroom Friday to make up for the teacher's poor judgment. The move 'is a really good way to fix what happened,' said Toni Edworthy, another upset parent." The teacher made "poor judgement"? Really, could someone explain how the teacher used poor judgement in explaining the truth?
