NY elementary school teacher apologizes to 2nd grade classroom after telling them there is no Santa
Advertisements [?]
NANUET After widespread holiday jeers, a teacher at Nanuet's George W. Miller Elementary School has apologized to her second-grade classroom after reportedly telling them there's no Santa Claus.

Leatrice Ann Eng of Pearl River issued the apology a day after she was accused of saying "no" to Ho-Ho-Ho during a geography class last Tuesday.

When the 7-year-olds told her they knew about the North Pole because of its white-bearded inhabitant, Eng reportedly responded that Santa did not exist and that Christmas presents were bought by their parents.

The alleged incident attracted widespread media coverage. The school and district offices fielded questions about the story last week that led to more than a few comparisons of Eng with Ebenezer Scrooge.

It's a sad day when a teacher has to apologize for telling the truth about the world we live in.


Maybe parents shouldn't be lying to their kids? Just a thought.
