"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I've got to hear the other side. We will not because of privacy laws, which prohibit employers from releasing this information.
Some employers don't let you promote your political views during work. In our county, we cannot wear political stuff during work, and if we use our cars for work, and we are reimbused, we can't display political stuff.
Generally, school teachers are not free agents and must teach what they are told. Your freedom of expression doesn't extend to comments you make during your employment as a representative of your employer. If you don't talk the talk or walk the walk they can fire you.
