teachers are like any other group of workers,if 10 percent of people are wife beaters,10 percent of teachers will be,and so on.and so on.the only change i want is for teachers to be graded by an independent body from out of the school district,the person teaches in.with no ties whatsoever with the school board or any local pols.totally independent boards,free from any locaal pull.for example a board from syracuse area would grade a teacher in massena,whos' teaching abilities have been questioned.
Interesting you bring up wife beaters... Did you have someone in mind.

Teachers are allowed to 'blow off steam' yes. However, they need to conduct themselves in the manner in which they expect their students to behave. Like it or not a teacher is a role model, their title alone 'teacher' means that they are teaching not only in a book sense but also in a life sense.
There are so many instances of bullying and teachers going off the deep end in the media lately that I am sincerely considering home schooling my children. Not to mention the fact that Massena is full of teachers that are elitists. They're big fish in a little pond, and a lot of them are flat out rude. Don't bother bringing these concerns into their boys club, they'll just laugh it off and elbow each other at your tanacity.
Anyhow, yes they are allowed to drink, we all know that. The point is if they're drinking and driving that is setting a pretty bad example for children. Whether there is a child present or not. I would hope that a teacher would recognize the influence they have over their students and take a minute to question if their behavior is ethical and moral on or off the clock. Preferably teachers act like role models, not a bunch of douchebag frat boys and sorority chicks like they do.... Welcome to Massena!!
really what about parents aren't they role models too!! They are never off the clock what's there excuse! Get over yourself and yes please homeschool!

Numerous cases of teachers molesting and bullying children? What does that have to do with the topic at hand? I could say there are probably more parents molesting and bullying children than teachers so I don't see what your point with that was??

First of all my child is female... second of all why are you so offended by that? Are you aware that in the United States we have one of the worst education systems? We have one of the highest dropout rates as well. Not to mention the numerous cases of teachers molesting and bullying children or cheating on state tests to make the grade.
As I stated my child is developmentally disabled and I fear for her in a public education setting. That's my right, just as it's your right to send your child to public school if you so choose. Do try to calm down. Are you a teacher?? Maybe you should go get drunk and blow off some steam. So stressful working 5 days a week and having all summer off.

Your kidding right? These people have the right to do what they want when they aren't at work. I'm sure you are picture perfect right? Never came home drunk or even a little silly acting? Please, get a life. I didn't realize what someone does on their own time that it was anyone's business. Why don't you buy your kids a pool and keep them sheltered from the real world because apparently you live in the best world that there is.

Anyone witness the drunken display from our children's teachers at Barnhardt Island this weekend. What a disgrace!I was almost ready to leave the area but didn't want to ruin my children's weekend. I attempted to explain to them that they were having fun but even my kids realized they shouldn't have been driving or acting in the manor they were. Ashamed once again!

you people are so imature. i know if i went to the beach and saw MY childs teacher drinking . i would be very upset and worried of having my kids around them. teachers are supposed to set a good example , and teach our kids there education, not to drink. if the school cant aford a good teacher then why hire someone thats doing half ass ? whats the point its not teaching them anything but half ass. if they wanna drink thats fine but when u become a teacher alot of things u do reflect .

You parent and let the teacher teach. They have lives outside of school and can do as they please short of breaking the law. The example parents set is far more important than the one the teacher sets.

Teachers are people too.They had their party at a reserved spot.Some people are not happy unless they can make someone else miserable.Keep your kids at home and homeschool them if your are so worried.And do not take your childrn to places where there are adults having a good time. Keep them home so they can be miserable like you!

I dont respect people who drink and they are not allowed near my children. Im the parent and I set the standards of what is appropriate for people that are paid by my taxes to work with my children. have a higher ecspectations than your average dumb a s s that popped out a kid and "parties" like some self abusive twit. A teacher is supposed to set an example of good behavior ..not public intoxication. That itself is illegal ..near children it's child endangerment.

The gathering was NOT near children. In fact, it was at a pavilion you would need a vehicle to get to and it had been reserved in advance so there were no families there at the time! I didn't observe anyone in a drunken condition...as stated before, it was very sedate; sitting, talking, and eating. Yes, we had a few drinks to go with. It was a celebration of another year completed. It's time to get over the unrealistic expectations that teachers are held to a standard of monks!!

To put up with those kids, they NEED alcohol.
