This is where we come to you wanting your opinion.  This is an interesting one where a teacher gets fired for her Facebook pictures.  She didn’t do anything illegal in the pics, but the school system didn’t like the image that was portrayed.

CBSNews.com has a story where a teacher in Georgia is fighting to get her job back after she posted pictures on her Facebook page that show her holding a beer and some wine.  Ashley Payne visited the Guiness Brewery in Ireland on vacation.  Took a few pics and posted them.  A parent complained to administrators.  She was, then , fired.

What do you think? Too extreme?  Or, should she be a role model for her students?

    I think its absolutely ridiculous. Poor teachers. Who wants to be paid peanuts and be held to impossible standards (more strict than government officials and parents, that’s for sure). We need to stop being so overprotective of our “little angels”. With media today, they are a lot more advanced than we’d like to believe.

    I think this is ridiculous.First of all, there is no privacy when you post something to the internet, no matter how careful you are, but I am sure that picture was posted for her friends, and not specifically for the school. What she does in her private time is her business and school and personal boundaries must be kept. After all, she was just investigating Ireland and their history, I am sure you can find the same information in history books somewhere. Maryland for instance was a giant in the tobacco trade, and that is in the text books, but does not mean a teacher condones smoking.
