New York Post published information about an unusual case connected with “Fortnite” Gam. Epic Games production was one of the reasons for firing teacher. 29 old Bret Belsky was hired as a physical education teacher in one of the Brooklyn’s school. The man heard a conversation between two students about Xbox games.
The teacher decided to take advantage of this fact and offered to play with them if they would be able to do his part. In March 2018 he fulfilled this promise, spending about 20 minutes on a networked game with his two students. One of them told his father about it and he reported it to the headmaster. The whole case ended with firing Belski in the autumn of 2018.
The Special Commissioner of Investigation for the New York City School District informed that the “Social Media Guidelines” are commonly known and cannot be ignored. Students and teacher cannot play together as it is strictly prohibited.
This game is insanely popular with them. I have to figure out a way to reach these kids, to get them to do their work. I love what I do. I am a good teacher – via NYPost.
Belsky agreed that he should have spoken with his superiors before implementing the “games-for-grades” program.
