Student Poisons Teacher's Coffee at Oakland International High School



So much for breaking the pencil sharpener or hiding frogs in the teacher's desk. Apparently, high school students in the East Bay are more vindictive than most. After getting reprimanded for bringing alcohol to school, a student at Oakland International High School spiked her teacher's coffee with dry erase fluid, and possibly bleach, the SF Weekly reports. The teacher spat it out and decided not to press charges, although the student was subsequently suspended for "attempted assault." But school board members — who heard about the incident a day after it happened — may take action themselves. Criminal activity has been rampant in the Oakland schools, board officials told reporters at KTVU, and students have acted with impunity for too long.
