• Let's start with a feel good story today: High school seniors Vikky Cruz and Deoine Scott were voted best couple at their Bronx school, beating out the two opposite-sex couples in the running by a landslide. •


• Almost 90% of the South Korean teachers surveyed in a recent study said that there needs to be something done to keep the gender imbalance of female-to-male teachers in check. The respondents (which were, strangely enough, mostly male) felt that the lack of male teachers is leading to problems in teaching and counseling students. • A teacher from Maine has officially apologized after he played the groom in a mock wedding with a fourth grade student.

Parents or guardians of Tyler Weinman:

Thank you,
