I backstabbed my own student
I teach 8th grade in a major city where students have to apply and test for admission to the best high schools. Over the years, I've gotten to know the admissions people at the best local high schools, since I often have to recommend students to them. Two weeks ago, I got word that one of my students, who tests really well but is a total ass and makes my job twice as hard as it should be, got accepted into the best high school in the area. He has the "my son is an angel and if something's wrong it's everyone's fault but his" type of parents. I wanted to put this little punk in his place for all of the grief I've gotten from him. I've been teaching him for three years, and the way I figure, all of the extra lessons I had to make just for him, and extra time I had to spent after school documenting things he did in class - that was all taking from my time with my actual biological children.
So I called my contact there and got them to reconsider their offer. They did, and now that student is scrambling to find a high school that will take him before he's forced into the regular public school shithole. He never knew he was accepted at his first choice - I talked them out of it before the letters were sent home. I wish I could have seen the look on his parent's face when they got the rejection letter.
