A middle school social studies teacher in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was threatened with disciplinary action, either suspension or even firing, because he made pancakes for his students while they were taking the state tests. He was suspended without pay for his infraction, although he said he never heard of a rule against cooking pancakes during testing.

But students rallied for the popular teacher, Kyle Byler, and the school board turned on a dime and said he was reinstated. No, no, they never intended to fire him, where did anyone get that crazy idea?

These days, kids seem to have the most finely tuned sense of justice and injustice. The kids are alright. The adults need counseling.
