Video Prompts Principal's Exit

Officials say a high school principal has been reassigned after a comedian's "Can't Fix Stupid" routine drew complaints from teachers after it was shown during a faculty meeting.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that Muscogee County Superintendent Susan Andrews reassigned Columbus High School Principal Marvin Crumbs.

School district spokeswoman Valerie Fuller said Crumbs showed the video as a "morale booster" during an after-school faculty meeting April 9. The video Fuller says teachers were shown features the comedian discussing female anatomy and plastic surgery. It concludes by saying there's one deficiency no pill or operation can repair: "You can't fix stupid... Stupid is forever."

Fuller said Crumbs will be working in "the department of academics" in a public education center. Crumbs could not be reached by the Ledger-Enquirer or The Associated Press.
