An official with the Conway School District tells KARK 4 News the district regrets a game among teachers at Conway High in which an educator made and distributed bingo cards with each square representing an aspect of a student’s physical appearance. Squares included “wispy facial hair,” “crying,” “huge earrings,” “sagging induced waddling,” “drawn on eyebrows” and “holy pants.”
In an email sent to KARK by Conway superintendent Dr. Greg Murry, Murry said the cards were distributed by an unnamed teacher in March. The situation has since been resolved without punishment for anyone involved, Murry said. School officials add that no prizes were awarded for those who had played.
One student at the school said the game was possibly part of “a competition between the math teachers and the art teachers,” with another student telling a reporter: “They don’t call students out in the hallways about it. It’s something they talk about in their free time.”
