Use of Facebook by a Teacher You are an elementary school principal in a conservative community in the “Bible Belt.” A group of parents meets with you to inform you that one of your most effective tenured teachers can be seen on Facebook wearing a revealing dress and holding a beer in one hand and wine in the other. The inscription under her picture reads—“I am a bad bitch.” The parents want something done, as they do not feel that her behavior reflects the values of the school and that she is a poor role model for students. How do you react to their concerns? What action, if any, should be taken? Do you have adequate grounds to initiate disciplinary action against the teacher? What is the probable solution in this case? Write a draft policy that addresses teachers’ use of Facebook.
