Teacher: I Was Fired Over A Bumper Sticker - Phoenix News Story - KPHO Phoenix
Does she have a case?
damn it ...they can buy their own drugs as far as i am concerned....
Yes. It is a valid complaint and how the school board could fire her over a bumper sticker just amazes me.
against who? the pharmacabal? hey, she should thank God they've been able to keep all those kids quite until the D.A.R.E. officer shows up.....
She could have taken the bumper sticker off and saved her job, but I still think the school over-reached.
Anyone who was offended by the message might want to consider why.
teachers should have all the freedoms of a normal citizen
Gee, I wonder what happened to her lifetime can't ever be fired tenure?
If she has enough money to take her case to court, she does.
Now please tell what other profession has to put up with shit like this, folks.
Good point but I think this is a private school - "Imagine Prep"
I'm with you, Chanel - "Imagine Prep" is a strange name for a public school and leads me to think it's one of those schools with some weird curriculum in place.
Over-drugging kids has been a problem for a long time. Some years back, it was pretty en vogue for schools to tell parents that their children were "ADD" and "suggest" that they take the kids to be tested. One of the "symptoms" (believe it or not) was the idea that if a child sat with one leg folded under him he was ADD. People were drugging their kids into an absolute stupor - but it did keep them quiet in the classroom and lazy parents didn't have to be bothered with giving them a lot of attention at home - especially when they were very young.
Sure, today there are all kinds of illegal drugs available to kids - everybody's in pretty good shape as long as they aren't dealing on school property.
Then there is the rage of "pill parties" where kids get their hands on any prescription drugs available in the home and then party hardy by sharing them and taking who knows what and drinking who knows what on top of it.
Whether the teacher has a case is probably a toss-up - hell, if Larry Flint can peddle porn under freedom of speech protection, then the teacher should be able to express her freedom of speech protections of objection to over-drugging children. Whether she has job protection is another question.
Now back to point on this, provide us the FACTS on NJ and tenure, since THAT is where we were talking about.
