Here’s some education news you might have missed…

  • An 18-year-old student was arrested at La Crosse Central High School in La Crosse, Wisconsin last week. He’s accused of Photoshoping the face of one of the school administrator’s face onto a liquor ad parody that shows a man fondling a scantily clad woman. [Channel3000]
  • Henry County, Georgia high school student Alex Davis, 15, is facing similar criminal charges for making a MySpace.com account that implied that Eagle’s Landing High School science teacher Robert Muzzillo was gay, and wrestled alligators and midgets. Davis says it was a prank; Muzzillo wasn’t laughing… [WSBTV]
  • A 5-year-old boy brought a loaded handgun into a St. Paul, Minnesota elementary school last week. He says he got the gun from a teenage cousin, and brought it to school in his pants because that’s how people on TV do it. [KSTP]
  • Parents in Port Washington, Wisconsin are angry and school leaders are promising action in response to a “Heterosexual Questionnaire,” approved by two teachers, that asked students questions such as: “If you have never slept with someone of your same gender, then how do you know you wouldn’t prefer it?” [JSOnline]
  • A St. Joseph, Missouri high school teacher has apologized for asking students to write about whom they would kill and how they would do it. Michael Maxwell said the request to describe how students would carry out a murder was merely a writing exercise. [Local6]
