    Tennessee teachers stage fake gunman attack
    Staged assault on 6th-graders unfolds on school trip; parents not amused


    MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Staff members of an elementary school staged a fictitious gun attack on students during a class trip, telling them it was not a drill as the children cried and hid under tables.

    The mock attack Thursday night was intended as a learning experience and lasted five minutes during the weeklong trip to a state park, said Scales Elementary School Assistant Principal Don Bartch, who led the trip.

    “We got together and discussed what we would have done in a real situation,” he said.

    But parents of the sixth-grade students were outraged.

    “The children were in that room in the dark, begging for their lives, because they thought there was someone with a gun after them,” said Brandy Cole, whose son went on the trip.

    Some parents said they were upset by the staff’s poor judgment in light of the April 16 shootings at Virginia Tech that left 33 students and professors dead, including the gunman.

    During the last night of the trip, staff members convinced the 69 students that there was a gunman on the loose. They were told to lie on the floor or hide underneath tables and stay quiet. A teacher, disguised in a hooded sweat shirt, even pulled on a locked door.

    After the lights went out, about 20 kids started to cry, 11-year-old Shay Naylor said.

    “I was like, ‘Oh My God,’ “ she said. “At first I thought I was going to die. We flipped out.”

    Principal Catherine Stephens declined to say whether the staff members involved would face disciplinary action, but said the situation “involved poor judgment.”

    This is a real threat facing schools these days. Sad but true.

    I agree with the teachers ideas to try and educate kids on how to handle the situations. I disagree with how they went about it.

      I feel the same way. The idea to try and educate the kids on the situation is fine...but what they did was wrong. I would be very upset if I were one of the parents.
      Power is not revealed by striking hard or often, but by striking true.

      It is men who endure toil and dare danger that achieve glorious deeds, and it is a wonderful thing to live with courage and to die leaving behind an everlasting renown.

          It's one thing to teach and prepare children for a possible attack, but very poor judgment (IMO) to make the kids think it's real and that they could die. Can we say 'traumatized'?

          Maybe the principal could tell the assistant principal and teachers that they're fired and will never teach again. Then after 5 minutes say, J/K!

                    I need pie. And I don't have any.

                    But, back to topic. I wouldn't blame the parents if they sued.

                            This was just on our local news. A student said that, at the end of the 'attack', the teachers came in laughing and said 'We got you. We got you good.'
                            She also said, after they do something like this, how can we trust them?
