This has been happening more often in the last few years.

"An Austin, Texas afterschool teacher has one kindergartener’s parents furious after she told students Santa Claus was fake, the Houston Press reported.
Susan Tietz Gammage said her 5-year-old daughter, Aven, came home from Pease Elementary School last week and asked if what Mrs. Fuller said was true.
“She said ‘None of you believe in Santa do you*?’ and said that you and mommy buy all our presents and put them under the tree. She said that you should tell us the truth*,” Gammage said her daughter told them."
*Think about it - The teacher pretends to be under the impression that none of the poor kids really believe in Santa. She is lying with her question. This is like the serpent in Genesis who asked "“Did God really say, ‘You shall not eat from any of the trees in the garden’?” The serpent knew perfectible well that there was no such prohibition. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Creation and Fall noted, the serpent, in order to set the table, started out with a question that he knew would require a clarification in response. Only after that did he attack.
** Not only does she dash their innocence and happiness to the ground, she then undermines the parents even further.
