Why are teachers treated so differently than other professionls?
Say you are at one of those home sales parties and your child's teacher is also a guest at the party. Why is it acceptable to talk about how your child is doing in school with her? Why is it acceptable to post on FB about what the teacher purchased and drank at the party along with how she acted? If it was your doctor at the party, would you feel comfortable discussing your health so publicly? Would you feel the need to gossip on FB about your doctors personal life? How about your accountant/financial planner?
I see it time and again on CM that parents get their panties in a bunch over what teachers do in their private time and I honestly don't understand why teachers aren't supposed to have a private life.
