Though indeed there is real teacher news today, including one Detroit-area educator who was found guilty of having sex with a former 15-year-old student — if that's the alternative, I prefer a little (Peabody-winning!) Colbert-ized report of one magical moment in the education of our nation's youth, thank you all the same. This real story, done up in all it's Report glory — well you won't believe your eyes.
This substitute teacher was somehow fired in connection with performing a magic trick, and bringing filthy wizardry and sorcery to the classroom by making a toothpick disappear. OK, fair the report is not, but, um. . . the interviews with the parents? Now that's some real magic right there.
