To the editor:

Why do newspapers continue to cover stupid principal tricks?  Is it because you think the “tricks” such as sliming the principal or duct taping a principal to the wall are newsworthy because they are “fun”? Or is it because the taxpayers and parents need to learn what the children are being taught as “rewarding behavior”?
