New York Teacher Tells Students Santa Claus Isn't Real

A New York teacher is accused of being a real Scrooge after telling her young students that Santa Claus isn't real.

News 12 reports a second grade teacher in Nanuet, New York was giving a geography lesson when students noted that Santa Claus lives in the North Pole.

The teacher promptly told the kids Jolly Old Saint Nick doesn't exist and that it's their parents who leave presents underneath the tree every year.

The school's principal has yet to confirm the allegations and the superintendent was unavailable for comment.

Maintaining childrens's belief in myths can be a tricky task for teachers. In 2008, a teacher in England got into trouble for telling stunned students that "only small children believe in Father Christmas." And in September, parents in Leigh Acres, Florida were outraged when a teacher told students the tooth fairy isn't real.
