Are teachers' blogs and their private lives any of our business?

NO. Teachers have the right to a private life just as people do in every profession. They shouldn't be held to ridiculous standards because uptight parents have nothing better to do than pass off parenting responsibility to someone else.

NO!!!! They come to school, teach, and can go home to themselves. If they post something, you can read it but thats them, give them a break.

Yes! Accepting a job as a teacher is accepting the responsiblity to be a lifelong example and role model for children... You can't be a "Part-Time" role model. If you can't be yourself in the public eye, then you have no business being a teacher!

If a teacher has a blog on a public site then it is our business if they are in constant contact with our children. Their beliefs and opinions are their own, but the real person outside of school may some day influence an action.

Once you have taken a teaching position you are an appointed figure for that school, and community. Your blog,and personal life is under scrutiny by not only the officers of the school district, and parents but also the students. Lead by example.

absolutely!! what one does in private affects their public life as well. people who place themselves in authoritative positions need the most scrutiny. you're instructing my child for 7 hours everyday i want to know every aspect of your life!!

No, but if you post it they will criticize it eventually.

Unfortunately once info is deliberately online, there is no way to retract it from subjection to scrutiny of any kind by students and parents. Onewould be wise to be highly selective with what type of info to place online bc kids look up to teachers.

No, they have a right to a PRIVATE private life, although public service jobs inevitably are more likely to be subject to scrutiny for something that is grossly inappropriate, and that is also to be expected.
