And I Looked Into The Soul Of The Classmate Sitting Next To Me...

Just when I need a good hearty chuckle about K-12 education to replace the bitter herb taste in my mouth caused by APS being, uh, APS, here comes news that some St. Pius students have been accused of cheating on a theology final exam. And now they can't graduate with their class. And the parents are suing. And this isn't at an APS school! Whoo-hoo, it's not APS!

Of course the best part is that it's a theology class.

Another gem is what the students are supposed to do to make up for cheating on a test about God stuff:

"They could not go through the graduation line, would have to attend a disciplinary program at a cost of $50 and would be required to take a two-week Internet course on theology at their own expense in order to graduate."--Andrea Schoellkopf, ABQ Journal 5.18.07
No news on how many "Our Fathers" and "Hail Marys" a two-week Internet course on theology constitutes.

There's more, and it's all a cathartic, refreshing change of pace from the unending tragedy of reading stories about APS. In fact, it's the best PR The District has had in weeks.

And it was a theology class. Bada-bing!

I'm guessin' there won't be any divine interventions for these kids...
I shouldn't laugh but "Bada-Bing" was the best line of the day...
