How administrators, parents, larger society reacts to any issues found on aforementioned recordings is the true problem; which the author illustrated with his examples, and commenters were 100% correct, there is no expectation of privacy in a public/school classroom for teachers.

How administrators, parents, larger society reacts to any issues found on aforementioned recordings is the true problem; which the author illustrated with his examples, and commenters were 100% correct, there is no expectation of privacy in a public/school classroom for teachers…You solve these developed ‘political sensitivity’ problems by, in example 1, reminding students and parents words like feel in the quote “If you have a history teacher teaching you that Trump is good then I feel really scared for you” indicates an opinion. Reality the student should be old and educated enough to grasp; moreover something teachers are freely allowed to give, particularly to a classmates question. And you are free to disagree with, but since it was neither inflammatory, gratuitously provocative there will be no negative repercussions for the teacher. There was no need for administrator expressed concern regarding what she said, nor Zimmerman’s stated problem with her if she was trying to slant students against president Trump, as her fear reads genuine, alarmed by what her student conveyed another teacher said. Increasing the care with which she said what she did by saying if then paraphrasing what she believed the student to have relayed to her, and we don’t know what the student seeking an answer, not the one recording, asked. Identical to example 3: “the only people who seem to be safe” from Trump are “white Christian males” using the word seems probably backed up with tangible examples based on his comments about Mexicans, Muslims and women; part of the issue is readers lack critical context to hear what was said before or after the quote comments, recordings began or ended, even what class this is for. As there are huge implications of what president Trump is doing for government classes, lessons on the constitution, the factual beating he has given to our founding document, the distain he displays for the rule of law and basics for how our government works, worth discussing in high school classes. Assuming consent is being taught in a majority of health/sex ed. classes, and we hope it is in light of Steubenville, the Stanford rape case, it is things like the infamous Access Hollywood tape and the litany of women to come forward accusing now president Trump of sexual harassment or assault have timely relevance. along with Roger Ailes and entities at Fox News, Harvey Weinstein and allegation of male on male harassment spoken about by Terry Crews, Kevin Sorbo and Anthony Rapp; you have hope of reaching kids, showing them Brock Turner’s face currently provides photo representation of rape in a recent edition criminal justice textbook. Why we should be less upset with example 2’s teacher calling Trump a “rapist and a dictator,” able to defend their argument by allegations and admissions made as well as ways her has run roughshod over the constitution, instead honing in on the criticism of the Make America Great Again hats. Examining closely if it constituted bullying; if it did, firing would be appropriate also if he could not adequately defend the labels he placed on Trump with quoted statements, documented actions as it points to biased ranting out of place in the classroom. Challenging Zimmerman again, readers shouldn’t adopt the perspective of the following quote, “In all of these cases, school officials noted — correctly, of course — that the teachers’ behavior was inappropriate. But nobody pointed out that it was also inappropriate for students to record them;” all of them weren’t inappropriate and the biggest reason the last student was recording their teacher was precisely because their “Los Angeles substitute teacher gleefully telling students that their parents would be deported” predictably to a largely Hispanic, Mexican descent, Latino classroom. Heaven only knows what he said prior the student didn’t get a chance to record; what we did get meeting the definition of inflammatory, gratuitously provocative, with a side of inaccurate owing to he could not possibly know the citizenship/immigration status of the students being a substitute, information none of his business no matter what kind of teacher he is. Amazing is that Zimmerman would want anyone like that substitute associated with the profession he obviously cares so much about. And if psychologists have put their careers on the line under the softly spoken duty to warn before regulatory bodies for the medical practice largely lifted the Goldwater rule prohibiting public comment, long distance clinical analysis of persons they have not seen or treated, to adequately respond to the Trump era and the potential danger our president’s mental status, whatever the cause, presents to the country, goes around the country speaking to groups about just this topic seeking to inform America’s public, 27 phycologists, psychiatrists, similar clinicians weighing in for a book on the subject, so many chiming in there wasn’t room to catalog all the credits, innumerate all insights. Don’t teachers have the same implied, perhaps clearer duty to explicate, explain what’s happening, how we got here, how we move forward, how we protect the fundamental pillars of our democracy from apparent unrelenting assault, provide reassurance and support? Kids 20 years into the 21st century need every tool in their arsenal to combat an increasingly dangerous, in hospitable world; gone are the, fictitious to begin, with Mayberry days where it can be as a commenter on story articulated “America: the land of you can’t do that it makes me uncomfortable.” Read More

This Is The Problem With Education: Not Curriculum, Standards, Urban Blight, Rural Isolation Rather The Violence, Cruelty Endured By Kids Via Supposed Authority Figures

If we want ‘better behaved kids’ truing into ‘better equipped adults,’ we have to demand better of ourselves; firstly by recognizing we won’t melt, the world won’t disintegrate if a young person, a teenager disrespects us, ‘disrespect’ is not an allowance for us to go nuts. Our age doesn’t automatically entitle us to immediate subservice form those younger than us, to boss around teenagers or of age citizens because of the way we think something should be done, it would make our lives easier; as annoying as the ‘bratty,’ ‘out of control’ kid in the store is, our annoyance is our problem and our responsibility to deal with calmly and rationally even when that means getting the heck out of the store. Just as the world doesn’t revolve around them, neither does it revolve around us; how arrogant and self-absorbed must we be to think so? Law enforcement, teacher, average person—your pet peeves do not carry the rule of law; again your pet peeves are your own to be dealt with calmly and rationally. The authority given you as officer of the law, teacher, home owners association director does not give you unlimited power over things outside that jurisdiction, and even inside it was given to you because people thought you could be trusted with it; act like it. Your pet peeves, your annoyance, what you are sick and tired of isn’t a reason to harass teenagers when they haven’t broken the law; authority given to you is not given, to be sought to avenge yourself on the unsuspecting world. Major authority figure, teacher, ordinary citizen— people who speak in neutral, ‘apathetic’ voices are not disrespecting you, are not looking for a fight, are not defying you; the exact opposite really, have a student in your class who ‘talks like a gangbanger,’ ‘sounds like he from the hood,’ talks to everybody like that, then when he talks to you the same he’s not doing it to irritate you, to start something, it’s merely how he speaks. Stop denigrating people for their speech patterns, their cultural slag, their culture in general especially if you are charged with education them. Speaking of, if we want education to be invested in by young people, it has to mean something; no, that is not an invitation to create a national testing regime al-a China….if we want education to be invested in by young people, it has to mean something; no, that is not an invitation to create a national testing regime al-a China. It is a call for no more going to school, doing well and being able to go no further thanks to financial obstacles, going to college, getting a degree, no matter how practical, and not finding a job because the employment system won’t pick up the ball. No more schools as conformity dens, akin to prisons in students eyes; educators, administrators have to replace corporal punishment, violent bully cops and hair trigger teachers, support personnel with people who believe education is a calling not a paycheck, all parties, entities who understand their job is not to stop class because someone has their phone out, the bag of chips in their ugg boots, to ascertain whether your outfit meets the schools dress code instead to teach my subject, help younger students be excited about learning using everything from technology to pencil and paper, helping kinesthetic learners find a way to assimilate things creatively. Balancing discipline safety and order with situations, circumstances and age level; stop making school a place even the smallest don’t want to be by imitating the worst nanny, babysitter, caregiver they know, opting for the best, small enough class sizes teachers can manage little wigglers without having to resort to military drills and tactics… Engagement superseding battles for authoritah; it can no longer look like this “If the internet and tiny electronic devices with videocameras were available in the 1980s, many of my school’s teachers would have either been fired or shamed into quitting….” [W]hy I’m scred of school [Sic] response stemming from the chocking teacher’s aide, not from his unruly, sassing, talking back classmate, the confrontation ‘he caused,’ but directed at the teacher, and we wonder why kids are truant, don’t want to come to school, on top of all else listed, we wonder why people circa the 1980’s looked up at authority, shook them off and said I will do better for my kids, for the world.
