    Presto! Teacher Out Of A Job

    He's probably genuinely fired for other reasons too but the timing of the district to fire the guy after the "wizardry" complaint from a parent downplayed that.

    Seriously, what can be so harmful about a magic trick? I've taught classes before and sometimes, you do things not necessarily related to your subject matter if it helps catch the interest of the class before you move on to boring stuff.

    Yea, even using that as any form of reason for him being fired is stupid. If there are other legitimate reasons, great, if not, don't fire him.
