VANCOUVER, Wash. - Parents of some Vancouver sixth graders are worried about what to tell their kids after a male substitute teacher showed up at school this week in women's clothing.Well, I mean it seems bizarre to me, but I am a primitive. The school district concluded that there was nothing that they could do about it; it did not violate their dress code. The comments on the article seem to be pretty evenly split between the liberal "isn't that wonderful?" and "Someone has a problem."
Students said it was obvious that their substitute teacher was a man dressed in women's clothing and from what we understand, some of the kids had a hard time settling down because they were laughing and making jokes. Some were eventually pulled out of class.
That whole part of the country is getting a bit weird; my sister told me that the assistant principal at one of the public schools in Beaverton had a bone through her nose. Not an earring or a stud: a bone. I suppose as long as she doesn't go cannibal on the students, who would care?
