Well, no we're hearing that the administration over at Chatsworth Charter High wasn't as happy about the cameo as the teenagers were.

This was a long time coming!

According to California lawmakers, public schools will be forced to ban naming sports teams The Redskins and teams already using the moniker must eventually phase it out.

Over the past few decades, the term "Redskins" has become extremely outdated and offensive to many, including those who don't belong to a Native American community.

Beginning January 1, the California Racial Mascots Act will give schools until 2019 to change their team names and to discontinue uniforms that bear the offensive term.

Obviously, the move has divided the state and not everyone is a supporter of the bill.

Married Mormon Grade School Teacher Arrested For Molesting 12-Year-Old Student

We don't foresee him being a member of the Mormon Church for much longer…

A 27-year-old sixth grade in teacher Phoenix was arrested late last week for having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old student of his.

Kenne Worthen is married with a two-year-old daughter, but allegedly started flirting with his pupil back in August.

The relationship turned sexual in January, and when he had the girl stay after school on April 10, the rest of her classmates became suspicious.

When the students came forward with their claims, both Kenne and the minor admitted to the crime and apparently kept in contact via Google Hangouts where Kenne used the fake name Jesse Smith. Kenne was charged with sexual exploitation for a minor, child molestation, and sexual conduct with a minor, and has since been denied bond.

Thankfully, police do not believe there were any other victims.

It's a good thing the girl's friends came forward — Who knows what could have happened had Kenne not been stopped!?

These are amazing and heartbreaking at the same time!

Third grade teacher Kyle Schwartz was having a tough time.

Though she loved teaching, she couldn't help but see just how many of her students come from underprivileged homes — environments she wasn't familiar with.

So she came up with a project: the kids write a note beginning with "I Wish My Teacher Knew…" and go from there. They could even turn them in anonymously.

The notes were full of sweet honesty and sad truths — so much so that when Ms Schwartz shared them on Twitter with the hashtag #iwishmyteacherknew, they immediately went viral.

Ch-ch-check out the pics (above) to read some of the most affecting ones — but get a tissue handy.

Whoa, this is pretty incredible.

Starbucks just announced that it will allow each and every one of its employee to attend college, and to do so without incurring any debt.

Yup, you read that right. That's somewhere along the lines of $250 million or the equivalent of 4 Starbucks drinks.

Here are the deets! All eligible full-time and part-time workers can apply to attend Arizona State University's online degree program.

Although the deal requires students to work through their studies, Starbucks hopes to have at least 25,000 graduate by the year 2025!

We wish all these potential students the best of luck!
