Head games

A North Putnam teacher got into trouble for some terrible transgressions:

The school board released a findings of fact document at the end of its special meeting Thursday that alleged Porter violated school policy by sending e-mails containing adult humor during scheduled work hours while students were under her supervision. Porter is also accused of making or receiving personal telephone calls during work hours at the school in Bainbridge, 35 miles west of Indianapolis.

Personal phone calls at work? "Adult humor" in e-mails? Just about every office worker in the nation could be disciplined on those grounds. Perhaps the children were being corrupted by the presence of adult humor in the teacher's head. It would be nice to know what the humor is so we can judge its its level of rephrensibleness.
