Remember that teacher I was talking about here? The latest I heard is that he is finishing up the year, but not recommended for tenure and not coming back next year.
Honestly, I don’t know enough about the situation from an administrative standpoint to make any intelligent comments about this decision, and I really don’t think that a Facebook page made by some former students helped make that decision, either.
I know several of my students were upset by my post, and will be upset about this post, too. I’ve heard from a few of them. Some of them are angry that I would “choose the teacher’s side.” Let me be clear: when it comes to a person’s rights and life, I will always be on the side of the person. No matter the crime, every person has the right to feel safe and be granted a fair “trial” or whatever you want to call this, and, especially, not to have hateful things said about him or her on the Internet.
