…is that you probably shouldn’t pit 3- and 4-year old kids against one another in some kind of Toddler Time Death Match.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s Michelle Bradford reports that two teachers at a church pre-school in Fayetteville have lost their jobs after it was learned that they were having students fight one another during “circle time” while everyone else watched:
Fayetteville police Sgt. John Warren said the investigation was launched Thursday after a parent reported teachers forcing 3- and 4-year-old students to fight during “circle time.” The kids had to fight while the rest of the class watched, and the teachers told them not to tell their parents, Warren said.
The teachers’ names have not been released, but they may face charges of endangering the welfare of minors. In addition, state health officials will be reviewing the facility’s child-care license.
