I heard a similar story from my neighbor about The Twist.

What's the rap with The Twist?

I don't know, Barry. There were a lot of uptight adults there in the boonies. And this guy was about the worst. From what I used to hear, he'd slam guys against lockers first and ask questions later. Between him and Miss Baker the math teacher, I was aftraid to grow up and go to high school!

High school is supposed to be fun.

Yeah, but it was better by the time I got there. Our principal was a sweetheart. But my brother managed to have fun; a lot of fun, even with the stricter atmosphere. He was the challenging kid in the family!

The only odd thing I saw in high school was during a student talent show, a Mississippi jazz band ended their set with a jazz version of the school alma mater.  The teacher in charge of the stage crew came out and told them to stop.  Everyone in the auditorium started booing. 

That teacher had no appreciation of musical genius.

Some people are just plain puzzling. One thing I've always wondered about was why our elementary music teacher got fired. She was just there one year, when I was in fourth grade. She formed a fourth grade chorus and and let us sing in the 5th and 6th graders' spring concert. It was a big deal and just a lot of fun. But then, all of a sudden she was gone. I always have wondered if it had anything to do with the way she changed the lyrics to "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". She taught us "As He died to make men holy, let us liveto make men free." She explained the difference and why she did it. We performed it that way, emphasizing "live" the way she taught us. I'm going to have to ask my friends what they remember.

She should have instructed you all not to emphasize "live."  Sneaking it in that way is much more effective.

Maybe she was scolded and she flipped 'em off and quit.

Could be. It was weird because we all knew the adults were mad that she was fired but they didn't talk about it. We were still young enough to just move on to the next big thing, summer vacation.
