Thanks so much to Pam for pointing out the crazy, here.

Can't read it.

It's behind the pay wall.

While we're at it, can a KNS

While we're at it, can a KNS subscriber tell us what Ms. Hayes is venting about? (link...)

Teachers' constitutional rights perhaps? Is she complaining about them about complaining about Huffman and Haslam? Or is it something else?

Hayes' comments don't focus on any teachers in TN.

She's citing by locale examples of teachers nationwide who've used pretty poor judgment concerning their use of social media--everything from sharing suggestive photos of themselves to berating publicly the students enrolled in their own classrooms.

Even advocates like you and me have to agree that the teachers in her examples deserved to be disciplined and/or fired (and they were).

What do you know, sometimes

What do you know, sometimes the glasss is half full. Social media use by caseworkers talking about some of their clients, not by name but identifiable none the less, have resulted in their dismissal. But all the teachers I know who use Facebook talk about their own kids in their home and the profession of teaching in general. Thanks for the info.
