#28 Lies Upon Lies
My former high school got on the news for having a history teacher lie for four years about being a decorated war hero. Guy claimed to have not one, but TWO Purple Hearts, among other things, and never even served a day in the military.
But it gets juicier, the truth came out because his ex-wife exposed him, sending evidence he was making it all up to local news stations and the school. Why’d she do it? The history teacher was having an affair with another teacher in my school.
We had a lot of weird teachers at my school, but I think this story shows just how much the administration hardly vetted teachers, like holy damn. We also had a guidance counselor get the boot for being a racist, but that’s another story that didn’t get as much publicity. —QuirkyWafer4
