Another Teacher Rants at Kids on Zoom

Can you really claim to be a professional if you behave this way?

‘If your parent wants to talk to me about their profession and their opinion on their profession, I would love to hear that,’ she says.

 

‘However, if your parent wants to come talk to me about how I’m not doing a good enough job in distance learning based on what you need as an individual?

 

‘Just dare them to come at me.

 

‘Because I am so sick to my stomach of parents trying to tell educators how to do their job.’

Far too many of these government teachers and administrators feel absolutely no accountability or responsibility to the communities they serve. They are offended that parents and other school stakeholders even have an opinion about how our schools operate.

The really troubling part of this is that this kind of ranting and unprofessional behavior has likely been going on in our schools for years – DECADES. The only reason it is a story now is because the “teaching” is happening virtually and can be recorded and viewed by someone other than the kids. We should be extremely worried about what happens behind closed doors in our schools.

Perhaps it’s time for teachers to wear body cameras? Or, at least, a camera with audio in every classroom? It would be pretty easy to archive footage to protect both teachers and students when there is an accusation of wrongdoing.

    Owen is right that this behavior has been going on for decades.
    Having been in many teacher lounges over the years, I was intially shocked at the disrespect many teachers had for the students and their parents.
    Because it was almost an everyday occurrence, you become immune to it.
    And it’s not just teachers but administration is just as guilty.

    Body cameras for teachers? No chance at all. Liberals are all about oversight and invading privacy to ‘protect others’ as long as it invades non-liberal’s privacy oversees non-liberal activity.

    Money laundering for Democrats requires no professionalism.
