A Principal from an elementary school in Texas is drawing quite a lot of attention for reading bedtime stories to her students through a live stream.

Dr. Belinda George, from Beaumont, is currently on her first year as Principal at Homer Drive Elementary School, but she is already making a good impression with both students and parents.

It has been reported that George has made a habit of reading to the children, or "scholars" as she sweetly calls them, every Tuesday night in order to have a positive influence on them.

LOOKING OUT FOR THE STUDENT'S BEST INTERESTS

According to the Principal, it is very important to make sure children develop a reading habit and she hopes to encourage them with her bedtime live streams.

“I want to extend what I do past 4 p.m. I’m not in every child’s home, so I don’t know if all or any of them have someone to read to them at night. This is just a way to give the children that exposure."

BOOKS OVER TECHNOLOGY

Every Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., George sets up her iPhone and starts reading. In her eyes, by taking some time to help the children outside of school she is helping "bridge the gap between home and school."

Usually, children get off school and go play outside or latch onto their videogames and social media, so it is very important to make them see that books can also be fun.

Parents were immediately on board with the initiative and several have said that their children never miss a live stream, even those who may seem too old for bedtime stories but enjoy watching them with their younger siblings.

Unfortunately, not all Principals are as nice as George. While she reads for her students from home, others hire pole dancers to put on a show for the children.

A SHOCKING RETURN TO SCHOOL

That was exactly what happened in the Xinshahui Kindergarten, in Shenzhen, China, where children three to six were greeted by a pole dancer during a welcome ceremony.

The Principal, Lai Long, was immediately fired after an investigation conducted by the local education bureau, who watched the footage of the sexy routine held in the courtyard.
