Do you feel it's a teacher's place to tell a classroom of 3rd graders that Santa and the Easter Bunny aren't real?
This happened to my grand daughter. Her music teacher told them. My grand daughter was really upset. She asked her mom if it was true, and Mom, of course, had to say “Yes. It’s true.”
A whole bunch of a child’s magic just got ripped out of her life for no reason.
If a friend tells a child, or the parents tell their child, that’s one thing. But for a teacher to announce it to an entire class of small kids is a whole different game, in my opinion.
Please keep the discussion to what teachers should and should not be allowed to discuss in a classroom and not turn this into a debate of whether it’s right or for parents to allow a child to believe in Santa.
