    No. That is unethical and they will get fired if someone finds out about it. Teachers are not allowed to discuss any information about a student to anybody including other teachers unless it's to be able to assess the student.

    No.  There are privacy laws in education just as there are in healthcare.

    Not sure what you mean by "confidential" The is no "teacher student" confidentiality like a lawyer-client situation. By FERPA laws a teacher can not sure records, but if you talk to a teacher that is not considered a "record" at least not according to current law.

    Basically, what is currently confidential are recorded grades (generally semester grades in most circumstances) and any IEP, 504 or similar records.

    No. Confidential means it's private.

    No, if it is confidential material, then it cannot be shared.

    No, not if the teacher identified you by name. If a teacher says, "I know a student who was depressed but got help for it and is now much better"- that's just trying to help other students, and wouldn't be revealing. But if the student is identified, and the students wouldn't have known otherwise, that's wrong and probably against school policies.
