Teacher tells pupils santa does not exist - then apologises.

How can any one spoil this for children - especially from one in the teaching profession?

Considering that parent's and teacher's tell kid's all sort of things nowadays, I am not much surprised. Things being discussed nowadays between the younger generation, had no bearings on my upbringing, and what I was allowed to know.

Apparently the above, as been explained as a possible question and answer exercise, which the teacher addressed as he thought fit, honest and proper. And from that, its been blown out of all proportion.

"Does anyone think it would have been better if the teacher lied?"

Yes, I do.

Nope you can't have the teacher lying maybe he could have been a bit more diplomatic with the answer though.

While I accept father Christmas is fairly new - is it much different to the invisible deity that run a lot of "adults" lives?

At least we only expect the very young to believe in father Christmas.

I do not think many who have had children will consider it right for a teacher to tell their 8 year old such a thing.

With fake Santas on every street corner, and adverts for toys clogging the TV, newspapers and magazines, I'd be astonished if any kid still believed in santa by the time they were school age

I think the answer 'santa is as real as YOU want him to be' would fill the bill. After all, the clergy keep telling me God is real, but I'm not convinced!

Our tribe probably worked it out for themselves and tried to keep it secret from us that they had known all along.
