Schools, face it: you try to hide all the big scandals, but students know. They talk. They hear. They aren’t oblivious. And they aren’t so interested in keeping things hush-hush either. Twitter user @fluffernutter99 asked other social media users to tell-all about the BIG SCANDAL at your school—and people did not disappoint.

My music teacher had a secret affair with my classmate. He left his wife for her. They then got married. We were 5th formers.

Small beer by comparison with some, and not my school but a previous school of my best friend (no longer here to tell the story), where the the boys gained access to the rubber stamp of the Headmaster’s signature and used it to resign him from his post.

Sports teacher burst into classroom & “shot” maths teacher, shouting “you slept with my wife”
Kids (age 11) go apeshit. Both teachers then went to front of class & bowed. Sports teacher held up the starting gun, laughing.
Annual initiation for 1st yrs apparently. This was ‘82.

French teacher who had had a girl in every fifth year for years finally excelled himself by turning up, drunk, at a pupils’ house party and getting off with his latest flame in view of everyone. This was too public for even the school to ignore, so in true 80s style

Oh and a long time substitute teacher ominously said he wouldn’t see us again. He was correct. Turns out he drove to another state and murdered his ex wife, then committed suicide.

Grade school: father of a kid in my brother’s class was a hitman; nun was removed for having an affair with a student’s mother. High school: geometry teacher was arrested in a big male prostitution bust at a turnpike rest stop.

A teacher confiscated my friend’s coat and then the teacher got fired and it turned out he’d faked his qualifications and my friend never got his coat back.
