What the Hell is going on in Australian schools?
CANBERRA – A student who fell with a noose around his neck during a mock class hanging that was arranged by teachers has enraged Australian authorities.
The high school student fell from a table while fellow students, under the supervision of a teacher, were photographing a staged hanging as part of an English class project.
Students and teachers rushed to the boy and cut the rope when he fell, Education Queensland Assistant Director-General Lyn McKenzie said, although local newspapers said the boy turned blue before he was freed. (H/T – )
Humorously enough, the teacher pulled out a knife to cut the boy down when a student intervened. Allegedly, the student stated, “That’s not a knife. THIS is a knife.”
Oh yeah, I’m going to Hell.
