    Teacher loses First Amendment rights

    Teachers aren't allowed to use their classrooms as a podium for preaching political or religious viewpoints, and rightly so. Anyway, they aren't supposed to do so, even though no doubt some do get away with it.

    But this is not a case of using the classroom, but of a post made on social media.

    This is wrong. Regardless of whether you or I agree with her or not, the school district is just wrong.

    First-Grade Teacher Suspended Over 'Illegal Aliens' Post: School District

    A first-grade teacher in Washington was placed on administrative leave after urging people on Facebook to report suspected undocumented residents, school district officials said.
    Cheriese Rhode, 29, allegedly posted a message last week encouraging citizens to inform Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents of those believed to be in the country without proper documentation.
    We've already started chipping away at the fourth and fifth amendments. Now, it appears that the first is also under attack. Will the citizenry stand up, or will we just ignore the situation until none of us have any rights left?

    If they fire this teacher I believe that they'll lose the court battle.

    I kind of hate social media in general, but both private and public there seems to be a lot of blow back from what people post in their off hours affecting their jobs. Mostly I feel that it's a bit too much. For sure, I think there are cases in that what one posts online in their own time has connection to an employer and legitimate concern for a company. But some times it just seems like it's an excuse to butt into someone's private life.

    In the end, I think that yes people should be wary of what they write online, but that also what they post outside of work, on not-company profiles or company equipment, etc. should be their private life.

    Sad to think she is a teacher. This would have a negative impact on her job as a public educator. They have a right to suspend her for this behavior.

    This just in: Just like the MSM is the propaganda arm of the DNC, the teachers union is the indoctrination arm of the DNC. This teacher said something that wasn't part of the child programming on her own time outside of any official capacity and is being disciplined for it.

    This has nothing to do with indoctrination, the DNC or teacher unions. This surely can have a negative impact on her students.

    Did you actually read the article to see why the teacher was placed on leave or just jump into conspiracy mode right away?

    What did I miss? Why would this have a negative impact her students?
