There's a reason why there are so many popular drama series taking place at a high school.


Everything is high stakes when you're a teenager, whether you're suffering through a breakup, being bullied, or having anxiety from algebra II studies.

Any amount of stress endured by angsty teens make for entertaining TV viewing.

Not to mention, scandals abound in schools.

When Redditor Benji19045 asked, "What was your schools biggest scandal?", the responses included controversies centered around both students and teachers.

However, unlike select story lines from episodes of 90210 or Riverdale, the following will reveal that truth is absolutely stranger than fiction.

Unconventional Sex Ed

"Undergrad here!"

"One of my professor, which pre-recorded his classes (because of [the virus]), forgot to stop the screen recording and proceeded to watch 3 HOUR of porn of everything you can imagine. Unknowingly, he uploaded the video on his homepage as he did for any other classes."

"Let's say he had some mandatory long term vacations."

The "Secret Mission"

"When I was in 6th grade, an anonymous person sent some people, including me, an email that we were all invited to partake in a 'secret mission.' We were told to keep this a secret, that we couldn't tell anyone. This person claimed they were a college student in Australia. Being 6th graders, we told everyone. Word got around to the principal and eventually the emails stopped. To this day I'm still confused."

Bad Romance

"Our Spanish and English teachers were lovers... English teacher's wife came to school one day and found her husband getting a bj in his office. That day we found out that the English teacher's wife was the Spanish teacher's sister too."

Bad Prank, Creepy Teacher & An Italian Affair

"In high school we had a student call in a fake bomb threat to avoid a test. Of course he was caught and expelled. Several of his friends tried to start a petition to have him reinstated, but nobody signed it. This was right after Columbine."

"I'm reasonably sure my fifth grade teacher was having an affair with the Italian janitor. I came into class early and he was singing a romantic Italian song to her."

"Two guys stole a girls seizure meds and got high off of them and had to be rushed to the ER, A girl was selling pot brownies at a school dance and they were laced with something and 3 girls had to be rushed to the ER Two kids were kicked out for cocaine use."

"I go to a super fancy private school lmao"

Life, Death & Religion

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
