The teacher, Natalie Munroe, was "reinstated because she has a legal right to her job." So... the teachers have their rights, but what about the students? According to the linked article, 60 students have requested that they not be assigned to her class. Now, the reason we know that is that the school's principal, Abe Lucabaugh, held a news conference. He took the initiative to announce that Munroe "has sacrificed her respect, her professionalism, and her ethical standing as an educator, role model and mentor for students."
"In exercising her right to speak and by blatantly refusing to apologize for her actions, she has created an unenviable position for herself..."Free speech, baby. Lucabaugh's got his speech too. How's he doing on respect, professionalism, and her ethical standing as an educator, role model and mentor? And what are the students — the "lazy whiners" — learning?
Unlike the teacher-blogger discussed in the previous post, Munroe has not deleted her blog —"Where Are We Going & Why Are We in This Handbasket." It's right here.
