How would you feel if you were speaking freely and someone recorded your words, uploaded them to YouTube, and the video went viral? Welcome to the world of the teacher - except most teachers are unaware that their words are public. Hunter Rogers was the latest student to record a teacher. The recording was made a week ago and is being used by the conservative bloggers to show how bad teachers are in the classroom. The whole recording is difficult to listen to because there is too much laughing. The teacher repeats not to disrespect the President and should have stopped at that point. The teacher did a poor job and is clearly disrespected by the students. The language is also very difficult to hear. I tried to give the teacher the benefit of the doubt. She clearly stated that it was inappropriate for people to give Mr. Bush a bad time while he was President. Now the teacher is suspended. The student is on Fox News as a hero. He has his 15 minutes of fame. I'm asked daily about my opinion regarding different topics. If the time is appropriate, homeroom, then I might ask for the student's opinion. If the time is inappropriate, core classroom, I usually preface everything with - this is my opinion - or when I am really thinking clear I state "there are many opinions..."I then try to pivot to the topic of the day. It isn't always perfect because some kids want to create a scene. This video shows the best approach is to not enter into a discussion. Maybe the best part of the video shows parents that kids use foul language, can be disrespectful, and love to create havoc in the classroom.
