Video madness in Chicago burbs

Here's a gem that should go down in history as the worst example of employee relations ever:

"A suburban school superintendent says he was only trying to be funny when he took videotaped interviews with his new teachers, spliced in his own gag questions and made the faculty members look like killers, strippers and drug users," according to the Associated Press (via CNN.com).

If you couldn't see the video with your own eyes, you wouldn't believe it (via the edu-blog JoanneJacobs.com).

And as if making the video weren't bad enough, the superintendent posted it on his district's website. His excuse for the project: He "...made the video to boost morale," according to his lawyer. His district's school board meets Tuesday night to discuss how well that worked out.
