Scrooged

A sub­sti­tute teacher in Montville, New Jersey, won’t be re­turn­ing to Cedar Hill School af­ter re­veal­ing a sacred se­cret to first-grade stu­dents there on Nov. 29. Su­per­in­ten­dent Rene Rov­tar told NJ.com that the sub got into a de­bate with a stu­dent about whether Santa is real. The 6-year-olds started quizzing her about the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Elf on a Shelf, and the teacher de­bunked them all, Rov­tar said. Par­ents had to do “da­m­age con­trol” at home.
