    I call BS. This was no joke. The teacher is trying to cover her arse.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    If this story really happened as reported, and that's a big if, then the teacher was way out of line and being stupid. He/she should be called on it.

    Why is it a big if?

    Fire the teacher, there is no other answer here. She can try her "jokes" out on her new job right after she asks, "would you like fries with that?".

    Even the school says it happened as reported.

    That's incredibly messed up, and I agree that it probably wasn't a joke. Even if it was a joke it was still a bat**** insane thing to do. Either way the teacher should probably be looking into other career options right now.

    There can often be factors involved that don't immediately come to light. I happen to think a number of these incidents are intentional provocations by the students/parents to garner media attention and lay the ground for possible lawsuits. Even so, I believe the teacher should be disciplined as her actions were incorrect and unwarranted. I don't believe, as the parents have called for, that she should be fired. I don't believe the assistant principle in Texas who paddled teen girls to the point of bruising has been fired and that incident far outweighs this one in severity IMO.

    What does it say about our country when "but I was joking!" is even a defense for a black teacher accusing a student of being in the Klu Klux Klan, among other things?

    So the parents sent their teenage daughter to school wearing a Romney t-shirt as an ingenious ploy to get the teacher to accuse her of being in the Klu Klux Klan, etc. in order to get their name in the paper?

    OK.

    Teachers can't be fired. They get sent to the rubber room, where they can draw a nice salary for doing nothing.
