Getting an 'A' for arson ...

Well, at least this story involving a public school teacher and her males students doesn't involve sex:

HOUSTON - A chemistry teacher who was at least three months behind on her car payments gave passing grades to two failing students who stole and burned her car so she could collect insurance money, a fire investigator said.

Aldine Senior High School teacher Tramesha Lashon Fox, 32, was charged with insurance fraud and arson, and the two students were charged with arson.

Roger Luna, 18, and Darwin Arias, 17, had been failing Fox's class up to their final exam. But Arias received a 90 and Luna an 80, grades high enough for them to pass the semester, said senior fire investigator Dustin Deutsch of the Harris County Fire Marshal's Office.

Somehow, I don't think the standards under No Child Left Behind includes auto insurance fraud. Guess Tramesha didn't get the memo.
