Teacher driving with 19 kids in her car. What was she thinking?

maire_cateOctober 18, 2012

This was on GMA a few days ago and I only caught part of the clip. This is unbelieveable - and maybe some day we'll find out it's a hoax, I can only hope that it is. But as they say - Truth is stranger than fiction.

But here's the story - a nursery school teacher in South Africa was stopped by the police because she had crammed 19 students into her tiny hatchback. She was taking them on a field trip to a local burger joint. She had 3 in the front seat, 10 in the middle and another 6 in the hatch.

Her comment - "They were excited at first but after a while they started to get more worried and cried."

There's even a photo of the kids crowded into the car.

Sure glad my little ones were not in her class. I would not be surprised that the parents demand they replace her.

Almost all of us who live in this part of the world have no idea how fortunate we are, i.e., have been - as we'll have a hard time keeping our current good fortune in future.

Joyful, she was not in an impoverished part of the country, I have very good friends in this area, she was partaking in a very foolish act. Has about as much sense as teachers in this country.

Unbelievable! Where I live, any school trip requires lots of chaperones-I think one adult for every four or five children.
