Plays Well With Others

Teddy Bear Teacher

She could be your mother or grandmother—54 year-old teacher, Gillian Gibbons landed herself in jail for 15 days for insulting Sudanese religion. She was eventually cleared of all charges.

It began when she asked her class to name a teddy bear as a part of a class assignment on animals and their habitats. The class chose the name “Mohammed”. A secretary at the school filed a complaint, landing Gibbons in jail.

Hundreds of protesters have now gathered outside the presidential palace and are calling for her execution by firing squad.
