A New Jersey school district is apologizing after a substitute teacher told first grade students Santa Claus isn’t real. Cedar Hill School Principal Michael Raj, in Montville, said once he became aware of the situation, he “immediately” spoke to the teacher about “her poor judgment.”
Lisa Simek, an upset parent, said the teacher told kids Santa isn’t real and parents “just buy presents and put them under their tree.” And she didn’t stop there. “The tooth fairy is not real because mom or dad just sneak into your room in the middle of the night and put money under your pillow, same goes for the Easter bunny.
She told them magic does not exist. There is no such thing as magic anything,” Simek wrote on Facebook. Administrators didn’t release the teacher’s name and haven’t said if she’ll be fired.
