What people don't know will hurt them. One of Carter County's teachers was arrested for numerous charges including DUI and possession of Schedule II and III Drugs. WHY are our kids being subjected to this in our classrooms. Why can't all school employees be subjected to mandatory drug testing - no exclusions. But here in Carter County, they want to sweep it under a rug. It's not right that kids are punished for having drugs and alcohol, but teachers go untouched.

I dont expect you to post names but can you say what school this teacher is from. I do agree that ALL teachers AND substitutes should be randomly tested. I have known subs in the past who were said to have went to their cars on breaks and smoked pot...rumors but still a parent worries.

Are you saying the teacher was/is not suspended pending a trial?

Guys, check starhq under arrested, it was Thomas Farmer, he was my science teacher in highschool at Hampton High School. He got arrested on December 13 for FALSE REPORT; Schedule II Drug Violations; Schedule III Drug Violations; Unlawful Drug Paraphernalia; Financial Responsibility Law (No Proof of Insurance); DRIVING WITHOUT LICENSE ON PERSON; Leaving Scene of Accident; Failure To Give Immediate Notice of Accident; Failure of Driver to Exercise Due Care.

Kinda blew my mind, but it happens. People you think would never do that, are the people that do it. Realize that.:)

Are you sure that it is actually him and not a misprint??? There are alot of teachers getting suspended from the city and county~BUT the public doesn't always get told why! It is kinda scary cause we do trust our kids to these people and the ones that are in charge to keep them safe!

Go to Starhq.com and go to arrested, go back to December 13th or 14th and you will see his picture, so yes I am sure it's the same one. Check it for yourself. I work for the city schools, and I don't know of any teachers being suspended.

Voice it to the schoolboard...not on here. I guess your sins are better? I don't agree with what he done, but there is a place to voice your opinions and it shouldn't be topix. I wasn't there, don't know the whole story. But I do know, if it bothered me that much and I was REALLY concerned about my kids, I would go to the school board for answers. 9 times out of 10 you just care about free babysitting for your kids and have a big mouth. There is a right way of doing things. My kids don't have this man as a teacher, but you can bet I'd talk to him or the school board if I was truly concerned. Just saying!

Hit a nerve with the babysitting comment, did I? Go to the guy himself. Ask him. Have you tried talking to the school board? Don't look to me like they can deny it if it was in papers. Why run here first? So you can hide behind a fake name? Take proper steps and low and behold, your kids may grow up to do the same thing.

Why is people acting like a teacher could never be arrested for such things? Hey, it's true, but why does it seems so unthinkable.
The city just voted a mayor back in after being arrested in a motel by the JCPD for being a john. Talk about high standards!!

Why hold teachers to higher standards? The "leaders" of this county aren't much better. Don't like it? MOVE! Who cares? You answer for you and they'll answer for them.

Honey, this is topics, if you don't want to discuss this town and it's politics and criminals, then your on the wrong forum!!!
I love this county, but just like anywhere you'll find a fool. When it comes to the people that teaches my children and represents my town.....I DO CARE. When we stop caring, thats when we loose what respect we have in Upper East TN.
Thats the entire problem with America, combined with the lazy people bringing this country down.... the "who cares" approach.
