The Massive Tire Fire at Prime Prep Academy Continues

The latest:

The mother of a student at Prime Prep Academy in Dallas claims the school won’t allow her to withdraw her child from classes.

Keshia Singleton says there are no teachers in most of her son’s 10th grade classes, and that most days, her son just signs in and waits for the bell.

Ten educators were fired and two resigned earlier in the year at the charter school.

We are now at the point where news like this doesn’t even make me raise an eyebrow. I don’t think anything would. “Reports say a sentient crocodile has been hired to teach chemistry.” Shrug. “A concerned parent says the school’s music class exclusively centers on Deion Sanders’ 1994 rap album, Prime Time.” OK, sure. “History books have been replaced by Sanders’ Power, Money & Sex, TEA source claims.” What are you, a Geico commercial? SURPRISE ME, SON. “Investigation results released: Prime Prep Academy discovered to be telepathic figment of our collective imagination, brought into existence by billionaire philanthropist Adrian Veidt, also known as the former superhero Ozymandias.” Yaaaaawn.
