Oops, the Mask Slipped

A school principal in Arizona is in trouble for sending a letter home to parents suggesting that their kids are stupid and lazy.

"The math we do is really easy," said the letter from Litchfield Elementary School principal Ron Sterr. "If your child is either too lazy or too stupid to finish it in class, I'm sending it home so that you can work with them and judge for yourself whether it is laziness or idiocy that inhibits your child's progress."

He's trying to claim that his letter was written in a sarcastic or ironic manner.

Looks like he should have bought the SarcMark®.

Sorry, I'm with the teach on this one. No, not the snark, that could've been better.

@Ronsonic: I posted it because it amused me, not because it outraged me. I don't have a high opinion of modern schoolkids or their parents, myself.
