No wonder so many of our schools stink ...

This is a common sense is dead story.

Today a teacher was placed on leave in Redwood City because he had in his classroom a complete idiot of an 8th grader.

A California school teacher was placed on paid administrative leave after he rattled a table to get the attention of his math students, startling an eighth-grade girl who used her cell phone to call police.

Atherton police Sgt. Tim Lynch tells the Palo Alto Daily News that officers went to Selby Lane School Tuesday afternoon because of reports a teacher was causing a disturbance.

Officers found a calm teacher with class in session.

The sergeant says the teacher's table-rattling startled a student and she used her cell phone to call 911. He says other students in the class weren't bothered by the teacher's actions.

Redwood City School District deputy superintendent John Baker says the teacher was placed on leave because there was a police response.

We need to severely cut education budgets in this state, enough so that the John Baker no longer has a job and anyone who had anything to do with the policy which says that "a police response" requires the teacher to be placed on leave is fired as well.

Moreover, the idiot girl who called 911 needs to be expelled.
