Blogs: Teacher Caught Whining Re Whiny Kids

image from www.csmonitor.comWhat's the proper fate for a teacher who complains anonymously about her students online -- and gets caught?  Should she be chastized or even fired, or held up as a truth-teller?  Her name's Natalie Munroe and she described some of her kids as lazy whiners, among other things -- without naming names.  But the kids figured it out, she's been suspended, and her case has aroused both derision and praise. Maybe teachers should be banned from using social media altogether?  Or limited to happy talk?  You be the judge. Where does free speech and useful feedback end and where do code of conduct violations begin?  Via the CSM.
