A broad education for children is a very good thing, allowing them to experience different aspects of all that life has to offer, but one teacher in Sola, Norway, went too far in broadening the horizons of her 3 to 6 year olds.
The kindergarten teacher was removed from her position this week after she took a sample of her own blood into class, poured in on a plate, and allowed her young students to touch and taste it.
The head teacher of the school, Lise Soemme Anderson, told Reuters “The children asked if they could touch it and she allowed them. Then they asked ‘how do we get it off?’ so she put her finger in her mouth and the children followed suit. The parents are mortified, shaken and shocked.”
The teacher, who was a temporary employee, was tested for AIDS and Hepatitis B after the incident. Although the authorities have not yet received the results, they consider the risk of infection transmission to be very low.
