    Default Does your child's teachers personal life matter?

Not the same for everyone I'm sure but it's easy to get sucked in and have one night a week turn into a lifestyle.

    These things are illegal for a reason and I don't think you can argue that a person who breaks the law for the sake of a night of fun has the right 'moral compass' (as someone else put it) to be teaching children.

    Just my opinion.
    Wow! In my younger party days when I lived in London and taught there for 4 years, I worked bloody hard and was a phecking awesome teacher when I worked there. Got awesome grades during inspections there. And I was a huge party girl. Probably much more dedicated than I am these days as a teacher even though I don't party anymore. I'm not a lazy teacher by any means now but my priorities are different.

    Nothing wrong with 'partying', I just don't think you need to take illegal drugs to 'party'.

    Nope, but I did back then and I was still a bloody good teacher.

    I have friends who take cocaine while partying. They are very far from being junkies or addicts.
    It would be a different story if she was on ice...!

    Anyone else is total shock at this thread?

    I'm hoping this is the usual 'bubhub does not represent the majority' thread we so often see. I'm shocked that some people think illegal drugs are not only acceptable but that users remain unaffected by them afterwards.

    I've just come into this thread and have only read the OP and the last 10 posts and yep I'm amazed too! So much for all that education growing up, must not have sunk in for some!

    ETA to answer the OP, I wouldn't care about the hook up, how much sex someone has doesn't have any bearing on their ability to teach (though some might argue that more sex makes her a happier teacher!). I would be concerned about her drug use though, but wouldn't report it to the school unless I was seeing negative things in my own child which may be a result / consequence of poor teaching.

    I hope people are holding other professions to the same standard.

    I know many doctors, especially specialists, as well as other medical professionals that behave far worse. Yet no one seems to be condemning them.



    What anyone does in their private time is not an indication of their professional capacity

    The thing is, it's a slippery slope when you start talking about a moral compass. Some people believe it's immoral to be gay, or to be a meat eater, or to vote Liberal, or to buy clothes from Kmart, or to have a baby out of wedlock, or to spread gossip.

    Teachers have a duty of care to students while they are in their care. In theory, that's where their job ends. That's what I was basing my response on.

    Completely agree. I posted very early on in the thread. And as a teacher I didn't think this going out drinking with friends was such a big deal. As long as it didn't cross over into professional life.
    But the illegal drug taking? I have continued to read along and I'm surprised how taking illegal drugs is deemed okay.
    They're illegal for a reason.

    Maybe you just don't have visibility of the ****ty aspects of their lives. I don't believe a healthy happy person takes illegal drugs. Just because they might wear a suit and have a job it doesn't mean it's all rainbows and unicorns. I would go as far as saying your friends are lacking in the judgement department. I couldn't be friends with someone on cocaine and I sure as hell wouldn't have them around my kids, even when they are supposedly sober (not saying you do .. Just hypothesising).
