• My school is requiring that we write letters to inmates at the state prison. Is this bad?

    I don't want to do this but I don't want to flunk. I am scared to do this. Aren't they in prison because they are bad?

  • Why do teachers complain when they get 180 days off plus weekends every year?

    Best answer: They have to deal with dumb students.
    Sadly, the amount of dumb students seems to be increasing faster than the 'worthwhile' students.

  • Do I have any legal rights over this photo?

    Best answer: On one hand, what someone said is correct - the photo is hers, she took it in a public place. However, under data protection laws in the UK (which may vary depending on country you are in) you can't *publish* a photo/video of someone if they are recognisable in it (your face is part of your personal data as... show more
    Best answer: On one hand, what someone said is correct - the photo is hers, she took it in a public place.

    However, under data protection laws in the UK (which may vary depending on country you are in) you can't *publish* a photo/video of someone if they are recognisable in it (your face is part of your personal data as you are identifiable), without their permission (even in a public place) - especially if you weren't aware the filming was taking place.

    For instance there will either be signs up notifying bypassers of public filming (in which case they consent to be published merely by being in the area) or the photographer/filmer will get people to sign release forms.

    This is the reason google blurs out peoples faces on streetview.

    There's nothing stopping people taking photos in any public area for their personal use though.

    (Youtube is still a bit of a grey area to be honest)

    Unfortunately now it's gone internet-wide, you'll be hard pressed to get it back I'm afraid :(

  • Do teachers have to retire at 65?

    A very random question but me and my friend are curious. Say for example you started working as a teacher at a high school or college. Do you have to retire at the retirement ages of 60/65 or what have you or can you literally work till you want? Thanks in advance

  • Do you think this is fair regarding what happened to my cousin at college?

    I saw My cousin today and she got upset when I asked her when she was going back to college. She explained she wasn't there anymore and she had been forced out by ONE person. A support teacher. I asked what she meant and she said, everything was going great until around two weeks in of starting (she started in september) when suddenly for no apparent reason this support teacher appeared on the scene and never left her alone at all and described it as being on a 'watchlist'. She said there was no outstanding issue and that there was only one small issue that was dealt with by the head of the course around 30 minutes after happening and the next day she appeared and never went away. My cousin was very unhappy about it all today, was very sad grumpy and angry all day long. It started off with this woman apparently offering different classes and it escalated from there. She said that her mum had contacted them about this harassment and the head said it will stop and she will no longer be 'present' but it never stopped. She was still getting all teachers in class to report back to her everything about my cousin in class, pulling her out of lessons for the tiniest of things etc. and this was over nothing outstanding apparently. my cousin also said that the teachers in class 'had it in for' as well, like apparently in one lesson people were being constantly told off and just told to stop.. she got a drink of water out which is allowed and just because the teacher thought it was

    Let me be clear that I think teachers should be valued, and held in high regard in our society. What I take issue with is the notion of teachers being underpaid in comparison to other professions. Where I live, teachers in this particular MIDWESTERN school district can make up to 93k a year with just a bachelor's degree, after 15 years of service. If teachers opt to earn a master's degree, this particular school district not only pays 1/4 of their tuition, but these teachers can expect to earn more than six figures. The COL index in the area in which the school district is located happens to be 127. I managed to make 90k before retirement, but that took more than 40 years of hard work and schooling.
