A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kickboxing.

I'm sure some of the parents of the kids that witnessed that have a few words. Choice words.

Any bets on just what those words might be?

Looks like the kids had more sense than the teachers.

What could have possibly possessed them to even think that might be appropriate...amazing.

The truly sad thing about it....in the comments ...there are actually people defending them...with the argument that teenagers are doing much worse...or exposed to much worse these days :roll:

If this was done in any work place other then a strip club the persons would be fired for creating a poisonous work environment...... it would even be risque at an office Christmas party........

With this type of behaviour and reality TV mentality.....I truly fear for the future :paranoid1:

Certain more interesting and informative than my short spat at the mandatory government indoctrination centers I endured. Frankly, I wouldn't be firing them for the lewdness of the act, despite that I would still be firing them. We have images far more provokative saturating media to groups even younger than this, so...the lewd aspect is only shocking because of the context in which it is occuring.

I would fire them because it's clear that the instructors have zero common sense and a likely comparable intellect at going forward with this..."routine". There is a great deal of stupidity harbored within them if they forsaw no ramifications or anything innappropriate about these actions. I can see how children can learn from anyone of that caliber.

Of course, down here in the US and in public schools, you would not be able to fire the teachers for any reason because they are members of the union and we all know that once you're a teacher in the union, you will be there until you die or retire, no matter how bad you are or what. No one wants to fight the teacher's union here.

It's similar in the UK, it's very, very unusual to hear of a teacher being sacked for anything that doesn't involve criminal charges. There is a slight change in the air though. A couple have been sacked for incompetence in the last six months. I think public tolerance of poor teachers has dropped a bit.
