This was actually a trial run for the state's latest program to cut back on spending for education. Rather than cut the pay of teachers, they were hoping the alligator-release program would naturally take care of things for them.

Default We're moving to S. Tampa in 3 weeks...

and I just showed that picture of the gator to my middle schooler - told her it was how they handled their In-Building Suspension kids down there She believed me for a minute - then she asked if it was found in the school she'll be going to!
