Natalie Munroe was suspended from her job in the middle-class Central Bucks School District for her profanity-laced blog, which has since been taken down.
In it, the 30-year-old teacher called her students “disengaged, lazy whiners” and complained that they are “just generally annoying” and “disobedient, disrespectful oafs.”
Online comments applaud her for taking a tough love approach or excoriate her for verbal abuse. She’s attracted media attention, and backers have started a Facebook group.
Munroe did not use her full name or identify her students or school. A school official did not return a message Tuesday.
If the lady didn’t use her full name or identify her students or school, it seems like she is being denied her first amendment rights. It sounds as though some folks out her way are being either thin skinned or paranoid.
Many students are lazy, whine, cheat and think they should get good grades for doing not much at all. Perhaps they need to read how they are perceived. Their bosses will find the same thing their teachers are currently looking at.
I am not sure why she admitted to the blog being hers. Something is missing in this story. I am not sure how I feel about this story. Meanwhile, if no names were given, what is the harm? Contributors? Is this teacher out of line?
