There's plenty of potential educationally speaking in all sorts of discussions and activities involving walls. It would be quite an engineering feat to build a wall spanning our entire southern border and there's plenty of social issues relevant to that topic as well. Regardless on which side of the wall issue you stand, it's a topic full of educational potential.

SCHOOL vs WORK
Although it gets a little ridiculous, there is a lot of truth behind this video. So many of the things you want to do in high school become things you dread in real life. Or put another way, high school kids think they know what they want, but when they get it they realize that it's not all that great.

This Lodi School Is Encouraging Video Games In The Classroom
Sounds like a little too much fun to me, but I'm open-minded enough to roll my eyes and say MAYBE...

Bryceville Elementary School - One View at a time
This is pretty horrible, but people familiar with the song it parodies will find it amusing!

The First Amendment protects "Nazi Salute" teens
People get all bent out of shape over the stupidest things. I don't really care if these kids were doing a Nazi salute or if it just by chance appeared to be something like that. The school district should have never wasted time dealing with the issue either. It just isn't that big of a deal!

Trona principal retires after 34 years
This guy has been around for a long time. His career in Trona began back in the 1980s.
Alan Tsubota is retiring at the end of December after 34 years as principal of Trona Elementary School. Tsubota was previously a teacher at Trona Elementary School and prior to that taught mathematics at Cerro Coso Community College for a couple of years in the early 1980s. Tsubota worked with 15 different superintendents during his career and said he learned a great deal from each one.

Bizarre teacher forcibly cuts student's hair while singing the national anthem
At first it looks like he's playing along with a joke, but then he changes his mind. One way or the other, the whole thing is bizarre.

Teacher charged with cutting student's hair in class
Seems like a massive over-reaction from what I can tell. The kid seems to be all smiles at the beginning of the hair cutting incident and so at that point the interaction seems to be understood to be a joke. Cutting a student's hair without parental permission does seem to be highly inappropriate, but it's a little bit of an exaggeration to consider it to be a criminal act. She might be guilty of professional misconduct, in which case she could lose her job, but this quite simply is not a criminal matter.
