    Wrong.
    That doesn't change anything. People have lost their jobs over smaller things. School is about teaching students and limiting distraction while having an authority figure students respect(which I doubt a lot of students do at this point). Academically inclined or not, a group of student's right to not be distracted usually trumps one teacher's job, and their complaints will likely be taken more seriously than the teacher herself. Schools are more worried about their kids and reputation than the teachers they have on their staff. They don't hire teachers so they'd have something to eat, they hire them for a specific set of skills and expectations that when compromised, are replaceable.

    Unique has a point about the kids, but i think ywir's being pretty realistic about the situation. " right to have a job??" I don't think so. That's not the mentality.

    I find it interesting how there is such little focus being given on the fact that middle school kids were not only apparently watching porn, but had the nerve to acknowledge this (whether plainly or implicitly) in the process of outing the teacher.

    We should preserve the little shits' best interests.

    Leave it to an ESFP to post a topic about something like this.

    Plenty of people are participating in the discussion that aren't ESFP.

    Not denying it, simply stating the person who posted it is an ESFP.

    There's some professions and some lifestyle choices or activities which are incompatible, they just dont mix.

    Teaching, especially younger people or children, involves being a role model too and not modelling this sort of behaviour. Different story perhaps it is a lecturer and an adult learning environment but even then I would not imagine so.

    Now, let the wild libertines of the forum bray that this is so judgemental and so wrongful and such an injury to someones sacred libertarian choices.
