Pa. teacher strikes nerve with 'lazy whiners' blog

Pa. teacher strikes nerve with 'lazy whiners' blog

FEASTERVILLE, Pa. – "A high school English teacher in suburban Philadelphia who was suspended for a profanity-laced blog in which she called her young charges 'disengaged, lazy whiners' is driving a debate by daring to ask: Why are today's students unmotivated — and what's wrong with calling them out?"

This is one of those things where the teacher has a very good point but she shouldn't have posted this on her blog. At least she should have been more diplomatic about it. What you say online is part of who you are to the world. Yes, it was her personal blog, but it's not like writing in a diary book. If you don't want it splashed across the evening news don't put it online. Period.
