    Drinking is stupid also. But since it is not illegal I won't bother them...unless they come to school drunk, then they will be reported.

    1: Lots of ways. But for now lets stick with driving + pot = stupid and dangerous. Driving - pot (or any other drug) = safer society.

    2: Every pot smoker that I have ever met is stupid. When they have to sit and think to figure out what 5+5 = then I would have to say that they are stupid...wouldn't you?

    3: I have just as much right to put my kids through public school as you do. And I also have a right to be assured that my childrens learning area is free from negative influences, and if any do crop up then they are dealt with properly. In the case of a teacher smoking pot that means calling the police and the teacher getting fired.

    We already have laws against driving while under the influence, so want to try again?

    2: Every pot smoker that I have ever met is stupid. When they have to sit and think to figure out what 5+5 = then I would have to say that they are stupid...wouldn't you?
    Apparently, you have not met many pot smokers.

    Yes yes, get the teacher fired for daring to partake in something that might get them mildly intoxicated on their own time. Oooo.... really saving the children there, aren't ya?

    And yeah, sure, you have every "right" to send your kids to public school. I'm just saying that a great many teachers smoke, or have smoked pot. At least most of the ones I've known. Ditto for college professors. But hey, you keep 'fighting the good fight' to put those evil people in jail where they belong.

    Heck, what laws are there that say teachers have to be held to a "higher standard?" There was a time we used to think that of our politicians and policemen but private life is just what the words mean.. "private"

    Why? Will you compensate the teacher for their "higher standard of conduct" by giving them greater respect? Bigger salary? The best healthcare to make sure they are as well as possible to look after the little darlings?

    Why? Do you expect the kids to be surfing bangyourteacher.com while in class?

    Lots of people come to work hung over, if it affects their job then fine - take action but if it doesn't, what business is it of anyone else?

    Bet you some teachers wish they could do this to their students, however I wanted to ask what if the teacher was an expectant father? Or had someone in hospital and even though they could take time off, had (I've seen this myself) come in to look after a class because the school couldn't get any cover at short notice?

    Your disrespect for human life is appalling.
    I guess if you were a teacher and one of your students was feeling confused about their sexuality and came to you for advice, you'd show due pastoral care? I somehow doubt it.

    Disagree. Many school teachers don't like to live in the same town they teach in -- because their private lives are held to a higher standard. You can't just draw the line at "illegal," imo. If a teacher doesn't like being held to a higher standard, they should change professions. Teachers, by their very job description, should be examples. And good ones.

    They are not held to a higher standard only when they are teaching. They are expected to consider it in their private life so as to not affect their public image, and this public image is off clock, away from the school.

    But only for the time they are paid as teachers. I know they are held to some mythical higher standard by some - however they should then be compensated for it - financially or professionally. Oh, and nowhere in any teacher job description I've seen does it say set an example in your private life. It's bad enough they have to take so much work home (unpaid and uncompensated).

    Where in their contracts does it say or ask this though? Do you ever wonder why many good teachers leave the profession?
