    There is more to the story than this. I can`t find the article, but I live in the same county. He wasn`t fired for doing the trick, but for continuing to stray from the lesson plan left by the teachers.

    They just said that it was the wizardry, I guess to avoid talking about his other "performance issues". I don`t know why they just wouldn`t out and out say that they fired him because he didn`t follow the lesson plans teachers left him, because this makes the school officials look like idiots. In any event,here`s the full news story.

    In both of the articles, there are a lot of accusations towards the school, and not a lot of quotes on their behalf. The full story posted here in the forum states that the schoolboard claimed there were other issues. While the man claims he knew nothing of those accusations, how do we know that? How do we know he`s telling the truth? He just got fired from his job, and is worried about getting a job in the future. If he turns this thing around to make it look ridiculous on the schools part, it may make him a lot more employable.

    Theres obviously more to the story then this, the media always overhypes little things about stories and the main details are ignored because they`re normal, everyday, the teacher can`t teach issues.
