A Teacher Tried to Get Kids Interested in Science BY SETTING A STUDENT'S HAND ON FIRE!!!!
Teachers have to get creative to keep kids interested these days. But this may have taken that a tad far
A middle school teacher in Texas had to resign after using sanitizer to set kids' hands on FIRE as part of a science experiment. One 12-year-old boy got burned badly enough he had to go to the hospital.
We don't know her name, but she's 37 years old, and she's already resigned.
She put hand sanitizer on their hands and lit them on fire as part of a science experiment. She did it with multiple kids in several classes throughout the day.
Unfortunately, one 12-year-old boy ended up getting burned on both hands badly enough that he had to go to the hospital. It's not clear how bad it was, but doing that with hand sanitizer can POTENTIALLY cause third-degree burns.
The school says the teacher resigned and is "no longer an employee of the school district." It's not clear if she could also face charges, but police are looking into it.
