A district schoolboard reported today that a Grade 2 student has been suspended indefinitely for calling his teacher "the EJB of school" in class.
The announcement comes on the heels of a heated exchange between the teacher and the student as to whether cursive writing was important.
The principal of the school, Edgar J. Boyle, provided a brief statement: "We aren't exactly sure what EJB is, but after consulting with the IT industry, we understand that it implies a high degree of excess proportion and baroque complexity, ultimately leading to failure. In some circles, it is a taunt of the highest order. We believe this kind of language was learned in the home, but we refuse to stand for it in the classroom."
There is no word if the parents will appeal the decision, despite rumors of a protest website being constructed with Grails, a nascent IT solution.
