Ok the original post by health nut was kinda of rambling. It went on about drinking and posting pictures of doing that online. Then it went on to describe McDonald's as a bad place to eat for teachers and how teachers should I guess eat at more healthy places. I think they would but this is Monticello all the places to eat are pretty much the same. You might be making a mountain out of a mole hill. There most likely are not any teachers that drink that even have a Facebook or post pictures of themselves drinking on there. Most teachers Facebook pages are very dry. I mean this literally. Nothing much to see except family stuff. Don't believe me. Go look. Before you decide that nearly every teacher out there has a horrible Facebook page. There may not be any at all.

You should never post anything on the internet that you don't want anybody to see.

If you are a teacher then it should be fairly obvious that you should not want your pupils to view candid personal photos of yourself, let alone actually invite them to view them.

Arguing that the public should take responsibility for the content you broadcast is inane. I hope no teacher of my child is capable of such flawed logic.

The teacher shouldn't have students on their Facebooks. It's unethical.

I can agree with a couple of comments here, and do so on both sides of the fence.
A teacher should NOT have students on their FaceBook accounts. There is no reason to. A teacher is to be a role model to children, not a social acquaintance for entertainment purposes. There are too many professional boundaries being crossed these days, and they are leading to questionable circumstances..
Furthermore, as a parent YOU are responsible for your childs internet activity. Keep an eye on your own child and quit placing the blame on what someone else posts. If you don't want your child exposed to it, then block it. You can't control what others place on the web, but you CAN control, or try your best to control, what your child views.

BE A PARENT. BE A TEACHER. YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A "FRIEND", BUT YOU DO NEED TO BE A RESPECTED ROLL MODEL..
I agree, very well stated...in fact, I am impressed. This is the most adult and civilized thread that I have seen on Topix. I would like to rebut one aspect of the statements about using parental controls or privacy controls on FB. These interventions are not fool proof as you can see by the "People You Might Know" side bar on FB as well as one who may share you and said teacher on their friends list. If said teacher posts something that may not be appropriate for her students to see, they may still have access to it in many indirect ways. Bottom line, teachers are held to a higher moral standard than the clerk working at Walmart, for the simple fact, that teachers help to shape the lives of our children by their influence and daily presence in a child's life. When I became a teacher, I was taught in college that professionalism was of the utmost importance and that no matter where a teacher is, he/she must always be mindful that a student or parent of a student may be watching. I believe that a middle school or high school student might have difficulty continuing to take their education seriously by their partying teacher.

perhaps everyone should watch what they post on fb, parents are the biggest influence on a child & teachers , ministers, everyone should be good examples for children, but they usually go rotten at HOME.....

You are right teacher's are adults but they also chose a profession that is in the public eye. they are also looked upon by developing youth as role models!Facebook is a social network and in my opinion a teacher that parties on their own time should be SMART enough to either not post bad influential photos of them selves on facebook! Or, these teachers should not accept their students on Facebook. Far as parents monitoring their children, who on God's Beautiful green earth would think they would have to worry about their child having a TEACHER on their children's facebook account. I know I would never have worried about it, that is until now! We entrust our children lives 5 days a week with these teachers and now it a shame we as parents have to worry about garbage like this!!

Teachers could "monitor" students who are their friend on FB and help guide them in the right way.

It's unethical due to the fact that you aren't supposed to have any unnecessary contact with students outside of school.

That in it's self is a bit of a problem. Absolutely no contact out of school? I've had teachers in the past who were like second parents to me. In and out of school. I can understand why it has to be the way it is, but it does pose problems.

No UNNECESSARY contact. I think that would constitute Facebook. That doesn't include field trips, competitions, etc. It's meaning, texting, Facebook, etc.

Would that include partying, and socializing? Saw some pics of a teacher once out clubbing with some highschool students. The teacher was wearing less than the students. Looked unethical for a teacher and it would be expected to see someone doing this with people their own age but when you see young teachers doing this with students it looks very bad.

Which really means no contact outside of school functions. Yes I caught your meaning. I still think it a shame that, that is what it has come to, but I see the reasoning.

I agree that its a shame because there are some teachers that would give anything for their students. You have a few that ruin it for all....

Does this mean a teacher can't/shouldn't go to church because they might have "unnecessary" contact with a student? Or should they avoid speaking to students in stores because that's also "unnecessary" contact? Perhaps teachers shouldn't be allowed to shop in Monticello. Students might see them eating at the wrong place or might have contact with them in one of the local businesses. YES, this is sarcastic. Who decides what is necessary and unnecessary contact? Who decides what is morally wrong? We each have our own opinion, but who makes US / YOU right? Teachers/students in Lexington would think nothing of an adult having a glass of wine for dinner. Why is our way of life right and their's wrong?

I think texting, Facebooking etc would be unnecessary. not church, stores etc.
