Value Added Measures Victory! First Lazy Bum Thrown Out

Jacksonville, FL: George Hincklemyer, a self-professed lazy bum, was dismissed from West Ashley Middle School this year after fourteen years of staffing room 7A. Hincklemyer had outlasted five principals in his time at West Ashley, but due to new Value Added Measures, current principal Melinda Harris snuffed him out.

“We’re just as surprised as everyone else about this,” Harris replied when asked how a lazy bum had managed to occupy a classroom at West Ashley all these years. “Mr. Hincklemyer had received outstanding reviews from former principals. During his evaluation by me, I first thought Mr. Hincklemyer was giving an excellent lecture over a Harry Potter novel. Then I realized he was just speaking to himself when he put three chairs together and fell asleep still mumbling.”

Students in Hincklemyer’s class didn’t seem to mind. “Most days during the fall or spring he didn’t show up.” reported one student. “But when he was here, he told us some really cool stories. Mr. Hincky had seen it all!” When asked why no one reported Mr. Hincklemyer, another student chimed in, “Are you kidding? Report Mr. Hincky and spend the rest of the year practicing taking the FCATs? No way!”

Not every student enjoyed having a lazy bum for a teacher, though. “He’d constantly ask us for spare change,” a student informed us. “He needed a bath.”
