Today I watched a disturbing video discussing the suspension of a high school English teacher. The suspension wasn’t the disturbing part. What was upsetting was that she was suspended for blogging about how her students were “rude, disengaged, lazy whiners.” More upsetting, however, was her justification that she used an alias in her blog and did not name specific students. (Interesting, though, that people still found out it was her).
So with all of the talk about cyber bullying and bullying in general, what should be done with this teacher? What are your thoughts on an “educational professional” venting about her students on the internet? How would you react as a student? A parent? A colleague? Let’s hear your comments.
