Gym Teacher Arrested For Taking Bribes From Students

Kid Various hated gym class*, but he never thought of this...

Another middle school teacher has been arrested for allegedly letting students skip gym class in exchange for a bribe.

Police in Pensacola, Florida say Tamara Tootle turned herself in yesterday and faces six counts of bribery.

Authorities say she told students at Ernest Ward Middle School during the 2004-2005 school year that they didn't have to dress for her PE class, but could still receive 100 percent for participation by paying a dollar a day.

A dollar a day??? What are they paying those teachers down there?

*In New Jersey, only two subjects are required for high school students for their entire 4 years, English....and Gym. Math, Science, History, Language...pfft! But Gym... that's important! Kid Various has found it imperative in his career to have those ball-dodging skills so accutely refined in PhysEd.
