Teacher facing punishment after killing rabbit in class
NAMPA, Idaho – A biology teacher in Idaho is facing disciplinary action for an unapproved farm-to-table lesson.
School district officials say the teacher, who owns a farm, brought in a live rabbit to class.
The teacher broke its neck, skinned it and cut it up in front of a class full of students.
“It’s not appropriate in a 10th grade class. It wasn’t approved by administration, it’s not part of biology and so that judgment is not appropriate for that time of lesson in the classroom in the 10th grade,” said Allison Westfall, the spokeswoman for the Nampa Public School District.
Students who didn’t want to watch the demonstration were allowed to step out, but the teacher is still facing a punishment.
