A kindergarten principal in Southern China thought the best way to welcome her students back for another year at school was a presentation of various dance performances.

Principal Lai Rong said her goal was to " get the kids to learn more about one variety of dance."  So she booked jazz dancers, and dancers who would perform traditional Chinese dancers...and also a pole dancer.  A pole dancer.  For kindergartners.  

Ms. Lai tried to justify her reasoning of having a pole dancer perform in front of young impressionable by children by saying, "Children are quite simple, they wouldn't think such complicated thoughts about this.  They'd just think that it’s amazing for someone to be able to fly on a pole like that."

The school issued an apology saying, "There was a lack of comprehensive consideration of the contents of the performance."  Ms. Lai said her intentions were sorely misunderstood.  She said, "My whole career in education has been destroyed by just this one event, just five minutes of performance.  The internet is too powerful."
