http://yhoo.it/f7K2Lj Pennsylvania English teacher suspended over personal blog discussing in a general way, and in a tongue and cheek way, the lack of comportment and academic application (rude, unengaged, demanding, sense of entitlement) of her students. What do you think?
Was this inappropriate? Was this so inappropriate that she should be suspended or fired? Or is this problem so pervasive that it demands a thorough self-assessment by the community? Is the reaction itself (see comments by student who agrees this is how students act and yet says it was inappropriate) a reflectionof the problem? What do you think? What do you think can be done to improve the situation?
