I find this incredibly awesome and disturbing at the same time.
The disturbing part deeply overshadows the awesome aspect. There’s definitely a problem here if 3rd grades are plotting to violently attack their teacher in a complexly premeditated manner.

Is does appear to be an exaggerated response. My uneducated guess would be that ‘scolding’ was not an isolated incident. It would be interesting and key, I think, to read about what this scolding entailed and any previous incidents in this particular classroom. This does not seem like a normal response from a group of children that have just been told not to do something like stand on a chair.
That story does not make sense and all of the pertinent details are not present.
