... I did say "meth," as in methamphetamine, ... though I wish it had been "math teacher"!
A kindergarten teacher was pulled from her class and arrested for investigation of being under the influence of methamphetamine while teaching, officials said.
Hold on now, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said parents had no inherent constitutional right to know what was going on inside the walls of a school, Hillary said It Takes a Village to raise kids, and this teacher had tenure (and would have whether California's tenure proposition (Prop 74) passed or not! So take a breath.
The tenure measure, which would have required public school teachers to be employed for five years before obtaining tenure instead of two, lost by 55.1 percent to 44.9 percent.
The reason it was defeated was because it should have specified 15 years rather than "five years"!
Lynne Filippini, 47, was teaching at French Valley Elementary School [Winchester, California] about 65 miles north of San Diego on Tuesday when "other teachers noticed she was acting strange," said Earl Quinata, a Riverside County Sheriff's spokesman.

She did not seem to notice that her nose was bleeding, said Lt. Cynthia Wait of the Temecula Police Department.
What difference does that make? She's a trusted and tenured teacher for crying out loud, she knows what she's doing! And meth, math ... it's only one letter and most teachers don't know the difference anyway!

And they're only little kids, just a few years out of the fetus stage, they don't know what's going on anyway ... right? RIGHT?

A school resource officer evaluated Filippini and then called the sheriff's department. Officers restrained her when she tried to walk away from them while they questioned her, Wait said. [...]

She was charged last year with two misdemeanor counts of driving while intoxicated, according to court records. That case is still pending.
O LORD, can you hear our cries? The inmates run the asylum and they've thrown away the keys.
