Principal On Leave For Letting Students Swallow Cinnamon
Students at a school in Connecticut participated in a “cinnamon challenge” during lunch and now the principal is on leave for allowing it to happen. The students were swallowing spoonfuls of cinnamon, but some say this has resulted in fits of coughing and even vomiting in other cases of this challenge going on at other schools.
Parents and officials are upset the principal did nothing to stop it, so he’s on leave while they investigate. Apparently this cinnamon challenge has been taking place at several schools. Is the school overreacting? Do you think the principal should have stopped the challenge?
