    A person's private life is their private life. Once they leave the school, what they do shouldn't be the schools concern.

    If there was a thread about those other professions fine. But this one is about teachers. If you're that concerned about all the others not getting their share of being in the spotlight then make your own post about em.

    As long as their private activates don't affect their teaching ability (both directly and indirectly), I don't see the issue.

    I hear you, but the point is that nobody makes those threads. I won't, because I don't go looking to hang professions and people out to dry, to look or sound unprofessional, to ridicule... and that is what happens to teachers every day in life and tons of times on this forum. It is getting pathetic, to be honest. I understand the innocent nature of the question and that people worry about who is teaching their children, I do to, but it is just taken too far and teachers are treated poorly. Like I said, I could make the same argument against other professions that have people in positions of power or morality, but people rail on teachers instead. People don't give the perverted priests half as much grief as they give a teachers union or salary. It is a societal problem and one that is not only completely illogical, but completely sad. The teachers that are out there like teaching, like kids and are working very hard to make teaching in schools better every day. But, they get ****ted on far more often than they get praise. They are treated like idiot baby-sitters instead of held aloft for caring for kids and their futures. It makes me want to puke. It is disgusting behaviour. When called on it, the teacher bashers come up with all sorts of brain dead idiocy to back up their ideas... and that is truly sad. Anyway... not sure if this was your thread, but those are my thoughts based off of years of observations.

    Re: A Teacher's Private Life

    If it is not affecting their teaching and it's not illegal. Why is it my business?

    Actually, I would only tell the principal if it is affecting the teaching, for instance if she uses harder drugs. If not, but it is illegal, then I would cntact the police. The only one who is illegal is pot, but I don't find potsmoking to be very bad.

    It's their private business as long as they keep it their private business. If they're sloppy enough that the students are aware of it, it becomes an issue.

    Why not? They are abusing illegal substances. I believe she should lessen the punishment for pot, but it's still illegal. Would you call the police if you witnessed a murder or any other crime?

    Re: A Teacher's Private Life

    I only call the police for crimes I assume they'll give a damn about. Call them for someone smoking pot and the evidence will be all gone before they arrive.
