Meet the Sixth Grader Judged "Most Likely Not to Have Children" by his Teachers

Drudge has linked to this story out of Philadelphia. This kid's teachers gave him awards for being "Most Likely Not to Have Children" and "Sir Clowns-A-Lot."

He has clearly spoken with an attorney. From the article:

"I was standing in the middle of (the two teachers), and they (were) reading
them off," he said. "Everyone was laughing."
Matt felt humiliated.
"They (were) putting us down and everything," he said. "That is not what
their job is for, to put kids down. They are supposed to teach us."

I imagine this kid is no saint. The teachers I know are pretty good judges of character, on average. But this is so far from appropriate that I simply don't know what to say.

How about those gov'mint schools!
