Local Teacher Forced Out for Bloggin'

Teacher's biting blog stirs storm | Chicago Tribune
He labeled his students 'criminals,' saying they stole from teachers, dealt drugs in the hallways, had sex in the stairwells, flaunted their pregnant bellies and tossed books out windows. He dismissed their parents as unemployed 'project' dwellers who subsist on food stamps, refuse to support their 'baby mommas' and bad-mouth teachers because their no-show teens are flunking.

He took swipes at his colleagues, too--'union-minimum' teachers, literacy specialists who 'decorate their office door with pro-black propaganda,' and security officers whose 'loyalty is to the hood, not the school.'
Ouch. Someone must have never heard the word dooced before.

My previous employer actually responded with, "so, you're not going to like, write about us, are you?" when I told them that I run a music blog. Uhm, "music blog" does not equal "I don't like my current employer blog," but I'm sure they didn't understand the difference. The fact that they asked, or accused me, of writing about them leads me to believe that the only thing they had ever read about a blog was in the papers covering some teacher/employee that got fired becuase of bloggin'.

Typical liberal media with staunchly conservative executives--a match made in heaven.
