A superintendent says a Michigan teacher gave non-alcoholic beer to a classroom of fifth graders as part of a history lesson. Superintendent Ed Koledo says the teacher allowed Hyatt Elementary students in Linden to sample O’Doul’s that was brought to school by a student to represent ale common in the 1700s and consumed at the time because of the scarcity of clean water. Koledo says the teacher made an “inappropriate choice.” O’Doul’s is advertised as non-alcoholic beer, but contains a small amount of alcohol. Liquor Control Commission spokeswoman Andrea Miller says giving O’Doul’s or similar drinks to minors can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor in Michigan. No one has been charged.
