xl5150: MAYORBOB: Well of course she should be fired. She made some poor choices 20 years ago and she should never be forgiven.

Poor choices in the past could easily lead to poor choices in the future. I wouldn't want my daughter around someone who makes choices like that.


I will bite.
First, please define, in detail, what was so poor about her choice that should prevent her from working with children.

Second, please explain the argument how people who have made poor choices and grown beyond them are less capable of advising children who may be faced with similar situations.

Third, please justify your contention that behavior 17 years ago is more relevant as a predictor of future behavior than behavior from the past 12 years.

I truly and sincerely hope that your are a troll (though I am pretty sure that you are one). If you really have this big a stick up your ass, there is little chance that your daughter, should you ever find someone willing to have sex with you, will end up anywhere but turning tricks in a back alley.

xl5150: No, I will make the investment to send her to private schools that have high enough morals and a vetting process of their own to ensure that she won't come into contact with someone like that. If it comes out that someone like that had slipped through the cracks, I would work hard to make sure that the offending person was fired (and probably the staff that hired her in the first place).


Well..aren't we special.

/you should have stopped after the first one. You're just being silly now.

Webb disclosed her former career when first hired. Yet she was investigated by the DOE three times - and twice spent a year in the "rubber room" - while officials probed the photos.

Each time, she was cleared to return to work with students. 


Your tax dollars at work people. Cough it up - we've got idiocrats to fund.

xl5150: I don't see a problem with letting her go. There are some people who should work with kids and some who shouldn't. I admit that I enjoy looking at racy pictures of women, but that doesn't mean that the women who pose for pictures like that should be entrusted with being role models or otherwise shaping the future of kids who come to them looking for advice and guidance.

I have a daughter on the way, and when she's in school I'm going to make sure that none of the teachers and faculty she comes into contact with have made poor decisions such as this.


The proper way to ride a broom is either side-saddle or astride,not impaled on the end.
That being said,you've done a fantastic job today.

Yup. I don't have the slightest problem with it. Go ahead, model. Even nude.

I did ER time to get my EMT certification in a city with a standard upper middle class liberal arts school and one ivy school. The ER tech said you could tell which school the intoxicated kids came from based on their drug. Liberal arts school - alcohol. Ivy - heroin.

Good luck keeping your daughter pure, my friend. Good luck.

Once upon a time it was unconscionable to think that a U.S. President could be elected with the public knowing he'd ever had a "toke" from a marijuana cigarette or "joint." Not enough to come down with the reefer madness, mind you, but inhaling the smoke. Perhaps he sought a high, or just to appear "hip" and "with it" to his contemporaries as they sat around thumbing their noses at the "squares."

Imagine Truman, Eisenhower, or Nixon smoking a hookah filled with "Maui Jane" or "Columbian Wowie". You can't conceive of it, can you? Of course not. Herbert Hoover High? Nonsense. But fast forward, though. Fast forward as if you were on the amphetamines, and you'll find not only one, but the last three Presidents of the United States, one still in office and the previous two elected to two terms each. All of them confessing to having smoked hand-rolled marijuana cigarettes, or "doobies", when they were still young men.

I can see a day when many of our elected officials will admit to having used not only the marijuana, but amphetamines or "pep pills", perhaps the ecstasy drug for dancing to the dubbed step-music. And not only the recreational drug use, but the photographs, video-tapes, you-tubes, and sext messages containing graphic content will come to light. We will find out as our mayors, congressional representatives, school board members, aldermen, senators, and yes, even the highest office in the land have participated in these deviant, counter-culture activities. For, you see, as these practices become more mainstream, they are no longer deviant or counter-culture, but the rites of passage of our youths and eventually the Sunday afternoon past-times of our seniors.

Perhaps even now, the young man who will campaign for the office of President of the United States, is laying on a table, wearing a lacy brassiere, eye makeup, garters, stockings, and high heeled shoes. His legs are in a sling suspended from the ceiling and his hands are cuffed and held over his head. His young lady friend wears a harness displaying large, silicone phallus. Wearing this "strap-on" she will simulate the act of sexual intercourse with the young man, except in this instance the traditional roles of husband and wife are reversed, turning the marital union on its head, as it were. And should this young man display the level-headedness, fortitude, and rational thinking needed to lead our great nation, it's entirely possible that we will not be concerned that he so documented his peculiar sexual predilections. We'll find it utterly unremarkable. Perhaps even charming as we nod and wink over our coffee, remembering the times that we, in our youth, wore a Darth Vader buttplug to work and sent a text message to our sweethearts telling them about it. Or perhaps used the camera in our "Smart" cellular telephone to capture an image me flicking my tongue at my nipple ring, or showing my penis encased in a chastity-cage with a text-overly saying, "Day 46".

Then we'll all remember when Bob Dylan sang, "The TImes, They ARE Changing" and wonder what self-stimulating sexual apparatus encased his genitals while he did.

My oldest daughter summarized parenting in our little part of the world (Dogpatch by the Sea) as the struggle to keep one's daughter "off the pole." This from a child who at one point expressed her desire to work in a New Orleans bar that had a pole.

DownDaRiver: StoPPeRmobile: eurotrader: With social media and people posting picture of every mundane and stupid thing they do how anyone will be able to become a teacher and stay a teacher after attending college where pictures of the racy and stupid actions are par for the course. If a kid has access to pictures of a teacher scantily clad from 17 years ago and goatse I can see why the old pictures of the teacher could cause a problem.

Where are we going to get cops from?

Uh, I believe you are thinking that that someone who carries a gun would be subject to the same standards as someone who carries pencils.

It's a shame that we have to worry about shiat like this happening to us. I'm a new teacher who just graduated from college. A year ago, while still in school, I deleted my FB, twitter, and untagged myself in every picture on FB. I was at a party this summer where people were doing shots, keg stands, etc. Yes, I did a keg stand. But not before warning everyone to please not take pictures. After seeing a flash go off, I had to track the person down and watch them delete it.

My point? I have no idea. I suppose that it seems like you have to pretend you're a protected political figure when teaching nowadays.



Or maybe it's nothing new, I guess.

ha-ha-guy: Wait you can get tenure at a high school...?


Common practice for most teachers' unions.
True for grade schools and middle schools.

In California the district has to make their determination after 2 years (so 18 months of service). After that, your committed, the teacher is tenured and your hands are tied unless he or she is convicted of a felony.

If that was a logical fallacy, it was definitely false dichotomy. If you're going to use logical fallacies instead of organizing an actual argument, at least get them straight.

In any state where the teachers' union has teeth, you can get tenure for teaching kindergarten. I'm surprised that you don't know that, being from the High-Five State and all.
 
2012-10-08 02:43:10 AM  

siyuntz: TFA: Her firing came just before she was slated to gain tenure.



And there it is.


Yup used a convenient excuse to cane her before she got it and now they are going get burned due to it or should.

The fact she told them about it when she was hired and that was cleared twice before kind of leave the school district with out a leg to stand on.
 
2012-10-08 02:49:46 AM  
The idea that posing in scant clothing is somehow morally reprehensible and a sign of a poor role model is so 1920's. Judging someone based on something so harmless 17 years after the fact is also inconceivable.

And yes, I do know what the word means.
 
2012-10-08 06:12:43 AM  

ThrobblefootSpectre: Firing someone for SFW pictures 17 years ago is stupid. I was on her side up until I saw she was asking for punitive damages, which makes me hesitate.


I'm fine with punitive damages. Seriously, teachers have the same right to a private life (and a past life) as every other person. We have not sold our souls to become teachers. Racy photos aren't illegal. Photography, even outright porn, is protected by the 1st amendment (and equivalent protections in Canada). School districts (and puritan administrators) need to be sharply reminded of this whenever they step out of line.
 
2012-10-08 10:29:51 AM  

Theaetetus: stevarooni: Not that I think it's right for her to be fired for this, but if her litigation is all about this one event, then I can't imagine her sex discrimination and 1st amendment suits are going to have traction. Wrongful termination? Maybe so.

The sex discrimination claim won't be about her being fired over pictures, it'll be that they really fired her to avoid having to give a woman tenure. It'll focus on the gender ratio of tenured teachers compared the ratio of teachers who are employed and/or up for tenure soon. If lots of female teachers keep getting fired shortly before obtaining tenure, that's sex discrimination.


Or statistics... Seriously, about 9 out of 10 teachers are women. You really think that over 90% of those not receiving tenure are women? -Even if they were, that would be a stretch to prove with statistical anomalies meaning that can vary *at least* another 5%.

'Cause, you know, Beverly Hills is a liberal hotbed. Also check out south Orange County. They'll love your liberal kind there.


Late to the party. If you are not trolling (you are), I bet your daughter winds up giving blow jobs for crack, or what ever is 'the drug of choice', in an alley somewhere just to get the fark away from you.
