Schoolchildren were left in tears after seeing one of their teachers shot down by a crazed gunman in the playground in a role-playing stunt organised by staff.The Headmaster goes on to explain that the idea was "original" (err, no argument there, Einstein) and might have "gone a bit too far" (no argument there, either). And the UK has the nerve to call us dumb rednecks?
The youngsters, aged between 10 and 13, thought they were taking part in a fire drill when an alarm bell rang and they were ushered out into the playground.
Head teacher Terry Holland said: "The role play was part of a science lesson where a selection of students and teachers acted out this scenario."
I'd call them idiots, but that would be an insult to actual, you know, idiots.
