Public school teacher dares student to eat dead fly for good grade

Apparently a teacher at Oak Ridge High School in Sacramento has been watching too much Fear Factor on television. Maybe the next time this teacher dares his students to eat dead bugs for an A on a test, he should tell them he was joking before he actually grades the test.

Stephen Zeldag, a student at Oak Ridge High School in El Dorado Hills, said his Algebra II teacher crushed a fly between his hands during class last month and dared any of his students to eat it.

"He said, 'If anybody eats this fly then I will give them an A on this test,'" Stephen said. He volunteered and swallowed the fly, sealing the deal with a handshake with his teacher.

"I didn't think he was joking at all," he said.

Stephen didn't get an A on his test: He got an F, with a score of nine out of 46.

"He said that I told you I'd give you an A on your test, so here's your A, but it's not going in the gradebook," Stephen said.

The teacher even wrote, "Here is your A on your test," when he returned the paper to the student.

Stephen claims he realized what he thought was a deal was really just a joke at his expense.
"I usually study, but not this one," Stephen said. "I thought it would be an easy way out."

Stephen said he did ask to retake the test but the teacher refused.
