Students Warned About Slap-A-Teacher Challenge:

To take part in the challenge by posting a video of yourself  slapping a teacher. Kids create the videos in hopes of growing their followings and landing on the  TikTok For You Page, where they’re seen by millions of other TikTokers.

With school starting over the course of the next month, Enviro 360 says school districts are warning students not to bring back the Slap-A-Teacher Challenge. Administrators say they will prosecute students, who videotape themselves slapping teachers. The National Association of School Resource Officers says, “Adolescents don’t grasp the repercussions and the potential criminal charges when they see something like this and watch it play out on the social media globe.”

I can’t believe that we even have to tell kids not to slap their teachers. Somehow, respect for others has been totally lost! How about a nice challenge like bring flowers to your teacher?!
