VIRGINIA: Teacher Resigns After Anointing Students With "Holy Oil"

A fifth grade public school teacher in Norfolk has resigned after the school received complaints that she'd been "anointing" students and their desks with "holy oil."
The fifth-grade teacher worked at Jacox Elementary School. Administrators said they learned about the teacher's behavior after it was reported by a parent. Interim Superintendent of Schools, Michael Spencer, sent a memo on Wednesday to members of the School Board: "In early June, a parent reported that a fifth-grade teacher at Jacox Elementary School allegedly was using inappropriate religious practices in her classroom. I interviewed the teacher, and the Office of Pupil Personnel conducted an investigation. The teacher admitted that she had rubbed 'holy oil' on students and their desks during the school day. She was immediately removed from the classroom, and she resigned as of June 30."
The school district says it's against their policy to perform voodoo on the children.
