Spotted in email this morning is the story of Natalie Munroe: a schoolteacher suspended for having a blog in which she shared her opinions about the educational system. Apparently, parents were horrified when Natalie called their precious little angels “rat-like” and “frightfully dim”.
Obviously, she’s unqualified to teach the clearly brilliant children.
Sorry. No, I couldn’t keep a straight face while I typed that.
Teacher after teacher has written to say that they are now former teachers or have moved to private school or have faced disciplinary action for speaking up.
Teacher after teacher has written to say how they are being undermined and chastised any time they don’t “yes” parents, students, and administration to death.
