(Newser) – Hiring a pole dancer to perform for 500 kids age 6 and under probably isn't the best way to spice up the first day of the school year. Lai Rong, principal of the private Xinshahui kindergarten in Shenzhen, China, learned that the hard way Monday after approving a seductive dance routine on a pole topped with the Chinese flag, witnessed by the kids and 100 parents, reports CNN. "She's gone nuts," a parent (and journalist) tweeted, noting that Lai referred to the dance as "good exercise" and previously approved "displays of machine guns and mortars" at the school attended by his children. Lai got fired hours after apologizing for what she now calls a "horrific viewing experience," reports CBS News. (Read more China stories.)
