    Teacher Who Sought to 'Demolish' Tea Party Placed on Leave From School

    FOXNews.com - Teacher Who Sought to 'Demolish' Tea Party Placed on Leave From School

    "Some other thoughts are to ask people at the rally to sign a petition renouncing socialism. See just how much info you can get from these folks (name address, DOB, Social Security #). The more data we can mine from the Tea Partiers, the more mayhem we can cause with it!!!!" he wrote.

    The state agency is investigating whether this is a hint at identity theft, and whether it is appropriate behavior for a public school teacher. It also will investigate charges that Levin used school computers during school hours to work on his Web site. Levin teaches 6th, 7th and 8th graders about computers and technology.

    Its sickening.

    No teacher should be allowed to bring in personal political views to a classroom.

    I will admit my favorite teacher in college did it but he also admitted it every time he did it.

    Teacher was Indian and he really was no fan of Pakistan.

    But at least he admitted it and never used it in a cruel way.

    I'm fine with that in college (if you make your opinion known and don't present it as unquestionable fact), but in middle school, I think kids are going to agree anyway just because of the respect they have for teachers (on an intellectual level).

    ...plus, they typically have no base of knowledge or experience to question anything a teacher says at that age.

    Nowhere I see in the article does it say he talked about any of this with his students. AS long as he was not pushing his views on his students, and did not break any laws or use school supplies for his campaign, I think it is improper to discipline him over this. Teachers are allowed to be assholes away from school too. Of course, if he did break laws or misuse school computers, that is a whole other issue, and I have no problem with the school punishing him appropriately, up to firing him.

    Wrong, there is a code of conduct that a school has the right to demand from their faculty.

    Freedom of speech doesn't ensure freedom from repercussions. You can walk in your bosses office right now and call him an a-hole, and you won't go to jail for it, but you will be fired.

    He did not call his boss an asshole, or do anything to any one at the school based on the article. False comparison.

    He encourgaged people to obtain personal information from tea partiers, like SS numbers, by disguising themselves as fellow tea partiers so they could wreak havoc later.

    Does that sound like an educator in the local middle school?

    Defend that please.

    And if he broke the law, I have no problem with him being prosecuted, as I stated. If he did not, and his outside activities are not effecting his ability to do his job, then it's inappropriate to fire him.

    From the article.

    According to the school district laws regulating teacher conduct, which are posted online: "The Beavertown School District rules involving teacher use of the district's electronic system clearly state: The district's electronic communications system shall be used for educational purposes consistent with the district's mission, priorities and beliefs. Educational purposes do not include commercial use, use for personal financial gain or political advocacy."

    That is what the investigation is about.
