Algebra teacher makes his classroom a ‘No Kevin Durant’ zone

Thursday August 4th, 2016

Because people still can’t get over Kevin Durant making the best personal and professional decision for himself, we have situations like this one in Indianapolis, where an Algebra teacher has made his classroom into a “No Kevin Durant Zone.”

What kind of zone is that, exactly? It’s the kind of zone where students are encouraged “not [to] take the easy way out,” or told “not [to] walk away from a challenge.”

Basically, this is a lame attempt to cover up how much kids are about to hate your math class:

If Mr. Hein ever leaves for another job, I hope all of his students create a “No Tucker Hein Zone” in their next math class.
