Parents at a South Windsor school are expressing outrage after teachers led graduating students to believe they were heading to Disney World for a year-end trip - only to reveal the next day that the kids were the butt of an elaborate joke.
One of the teachers recorded the scene on an iPad and it was later shown to another class so they too could join in the teachers' merriment.
"I have a lot of respect for teachers and what they do, but this was really stupid judgment," said parent Peter To-polovec.

Done to teach a lesson to one kid who was snooping in a teacher’s desk.
Oh. Fantastic. That means its all right then. Whew!
Is that point in the article?
Yes, page 2.
Wow, reading some of the reactions by the parents makes it clear why government schools are allowed to get away with the crap they pull every day. The wussification of the free world is in full stride. What a bunch of weak-kneed wimps. I feel more for these kids more because their parents are spineless than I do for what these idiot teachers did to them.
Only one thing for teachers to do now...they have to pony up for the real thing
This reminds me of that company that held a raffle and led some woman to believe she had won a new car, and then they took her into a conference room and presented her with a “toy Yoda” (the Star Wars character). She sued.
Thanks. I read the article too fast.
It reminds me of the Opie and Anthony prank of winning a hundred grand (candy bar)!
Makes me think of the Honeymooners episode where Ralph thinks he’s going to inherit a rich man’s “fortune”...and then finds out at the will reading that “Fortune” was the name of his pet bird.
Bowling? is that appropriate for 8th graders?
"It's a very intimate situation! It's all sexy with the smoke, and the sweating, and the shoe rental..."
I say take the kids to WDW with $ from the teachers’ pension
Very likely the most important lesson these kids will ever learn in their public school.
“He said part of his weekend was spent convincing his three children that “this is not the norm” and that teachers, as authority figures, should continue to be respected and trusted.”
Remember Children, the government is your authority figure and should be respected and trusted... because... you have no other choice.
“Hey...Teacher....Leave those kids alone.”
“Bonnie Stewart, mother of twins who attend Grade 8 at Roseland, came home at 5 p.m. Friday to find both her kids already in their beds. She woke her son, who told her everything.”
8th graders in bed at 5:00pm on a Friday? What the.....
Yeah, I had the specifics messed up, but that’s the story I remembered.
Thanks for finding that.
There are new public school horror stories daily, see Massataxes for instance, and parents who were desensitized too don’t know or don’t think its their business to do anything about it
Why would you allow your kids to go on overnight trips with these pervs in the first place?
I just wanted to know the motivation for such a trick. It was mentioned near the end of the article.
We need to get our kids out of public school.
To all- please ping me to Canadian topics.
just what you would expect when dumb idiots get put in charge. I think their utter lack of honesty and empathy should get them fired, every last one of them.
The Toyota woman won her lawsuit. In fairness, the kids should also sue their teachers.
Whatever happened to "Question authority"?
This father definintely drank the kool-aid
Good memory. I looked it up and she got her real Toyota:
Live and learn.
Are they serious? Is this the same Hooters that is known for ...
