Every school has a scandal of some sort in their history. In my school a teacher was arrested for the importing and distribution of illegal bushmeat, I know that the memory of his transgression continues to eat away at the fabric of the school community - like some sort of vast moth made of guilt - it is the telltale heart whose every beat echoes the school's collective shame.
Well, one Twitter user, put it to the world for people to weigh in with whatever 'incidents' were notorious from their schools and the results don't disappoint.
What was “the incident” in your high school?

A history teacher dated and impregnated a senior. He kept his job, she transferred and gave birth. They married, divorced, and she became a history teacher in that same school. All within 4 years.
