Middle School Students Dig Tunnel with Stolen Spoons in Bid to Escape School

The prisoners, ages 11-14, were kept in Djanogly City Academy under the watchful eye of head teacher Elaine Crookes, the toughest commandant in all of Nottingham, UK. But the students were mindful of their duty to escape and rejoin their national forces. So they discreetly swiped spoons from the mess hall and hid along the 12-foot tall metal fence that surrounded the camp. Unfortunately, they had to abandon their attempt before getting caught.

Guards found their tunnel and equipment, so they'll have to use a different method in the future. BBC News reports:

The hole has been filled in and the fence reinforced, the school said.

In an email sent to staff, teachers were warned to be on the lookout after a large quantity of cutlery was found near a hole at the bottom of the fence. […]

The email added that the hole has been filled in and a metal bar placed across the section of the fence to prevent a repeat attempt.

When I was reading this article I just thought about people who teach them. You should have a huge heart to work with such student and then to say that he is not guilty as he didn`t understand what he was doing. To my mind both teachers and students have a right to have a normal life and be safe. I was planning to work with special pupils but now I am still a student and I am finishing my coursework, applying for assistance and I am not sure that I want to be take risks and moreover to realize that nobody will protect me.
