Elementary Students Expelled After Trying To Poison Teacher

Rat Poison

Three children at California’s Balderas Elementary School were expelled and are being sent to  new schools after they attempted to put rat poison in their teacher’s coffee.

The children are only 10 and 11-years-old and they may have gotten away with their plan if not for the fact that one of the boys knocked the cup of coffee out of the teacher’s hand just as she was about to take a sip.

District officials learned about the murder attempt two weeks ago and quickly acted to expel all three children. In the meantime teachers and parents are not happy with the punishment.

One teacher at the Phoenix Academy where two of the boys will be sent told KFSN:

“They should not be placed at another campus where now other staff and other students have to worry. These kids are going to be elevated to gods to many of our kids, they’re going to say this is great, ‘maybe I can do something similar to a teacher or an adult.'”

Perhaps home schooling would be best for these students, at least that way the only people they can hurt are the mom’s and dad’s that were suppose to be keeping an eye on them in the first place.
