UFO Hoax Scares Students
"Parents of children at a British school said young students were traumatized when school staff staged an `alien` abduction of a teacher.
The parents said teachers at Southway Junior School in Burgess Hill, England, terrified students, some as young as 7, by faking a spaceship crash near classrooms and having costumed aliens kidnap a teacher, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.
School officials said the event was designed to encourage students to use their imaginations during `Everyone Writes Day.`" UPI.Com
The teacher should have used her imagination, and come up with a way to inspire her students that wouldn`t traumatize them for life.
I`m not surprised the students fell for the prank, the police were in on the plot and they showed up to take statements from the terrified kids.
I`m sure a MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) investigator is on the scene, persuaded that the teacher really was abducted by UFOs, and that the authorities are covering it up.
I`m sure this stunt will motivate the youngsters to write essays about how they want to wreak revenge on their clueless teacher.
