To prepare his students for college, not to babysit them. But when a group of his students decided to swap their midterm exams for a day of fun at an amusement park, things took a dramatic turn. Let's dive into this rollercoaster of a tale. 🎢📚

The Rollercoaster of a Midterm: Strictness or Injustice?

In a whirlwind of events, our math teacher found himself at the center of a school-wide drama. After discovering a group of 'sick' students enjoying a day at the amusement park instead of taking their midterms, he decided to uphold his strict absenteeism policy, resulting in a few students failing his class. This decision sparked outrage among other teachers and even assistant principals, who accused him of being too harsh. But our teacher stands firm, believing that he's preparing his students for the realities of college. Let's see what the internet has to say about this intriguing situation. 🎢📚
