Teacher Fired For Playing Beyoncé's Drunk in Love To Her Sixth Grade Class!

teacher fired for playing beyonces drunk in love class

Beyoncé and Jay Z may not see eye-to-eye on a lot of things these days.

But we bet they would both agree how this probably wasn't the best move for a teacher!

Atlanta Public Schools has stopped a sixth grade teacher named Nikki Turner from coming in to work, and they're attempting to remove her completely partly because of the fact that she played the song Drunk in Love for her students at the Coan Middle School.

Here's how a school district document explained the charges:

Saturday Night Live Alum Receives A Pretty Hefty Sentence For DUI!

Filed under: TV NewsSaturday Night Live

Live from the court room…it's Chris Kattan's sentence!

We reported earlier how Chris had been arrested for a DUI after he crashed into a parked Department of Transportation vehicle!

Now, Chris will not only have to spend the next 3 years being on probation, attend drug and alcohol classes, he'll have to cough up a whopping $500 fine!

That's right, the Saturday Night Live alum will have to go through a 3-month alcohol program, and complete classes in 104 Narcotics Anonymous.

On top of that, he'll have to participate in a Hospital and Morgue Program, which sounds like it might be a real eye opening experience for him.

From now on, he's not allowed to drive with any drugs in his system! That is, unless he happens to have a valid prescription!

According to sources in law enforcement, Chris had been on Ambien the time of his arrest.

You Know Nothing Unless You Take This Awesome Game Of Thrones Class!

Filed under: BookzSchoolGame Of ThronesGIFs

If only this class were available to the Jon Snow, then Ygritte wouldn't rub his cluelessness in his face so much! HA!

But then, maybe the show wouldn't have earned as many Emmy nods as it did!

So now, not only can you watch Game of Thrones on HBO, but now you can actually STUDY it thanks to the class being offered at the University of Virginia!

(Looks like someone's taking advice from the professor who created the Miley Cyrus sociology course!)

But, wait, GoT is based on a book series, what's the big deal that there's a college course on it?

Well, Lisa Woolfork, the professor of the summer class at UVA, explains that it's much MORE than just a silly old English class.

In fact, she's teaching the books along with the HBO episodes and proving that the series doesn't "ruin" the books, but they enhance the reading experience!

She said:

'One of the goals behind this class was to teach students how the skills that we use to study literature are very useful skills for reading literature and TV in conjunction. Game of Thrones is popular, it’s interesting, but it’s also very serious. There are a lot of things in the series that are very weighty, and very meaningful, and can be illuminated through the skills of literary analysis'

It’s so literary – how in-depth it is, how robust it is, how much there is to discuss about it. But we’re also very concerned about the pop culture aspects, how we as viewers receive Game of Thrones. I think it’s important to apply the same principles we do with literature to television and film…'

WHOA! How exciting does THAT sound!

We wonder what the next pop culture-induced college class will be?

The Avengers differences in comic books and movies? Taylor Swift's influence on the music industry?

So many options!

autistic teen gives ipad graduation speech amazing

Dillan Barmache gave an incredible speech during his graduation ceremony at Hale Charter Academy — but that's not even half of it.

What's super impressive is the fact that's he's autistic and he's non-verbal!!

The 14-year-old had often felt trapped inside his own body, unable to speak. With the help of an iPad and a letter board, Dillan was able to give his speech.

The whole speech reads:
