A North Carolina High School teacher is under fire for yelling at students telling proclaiming it’s not okay to criticize Obama. Watch (listen) the video. Should this teacher be punished or is it okay to behave this way?

Absolutely not!! It is not ok for her to act this way! If this was my Daughters teacher and she was the student that got yelled at I would be at that school in her classroom in seconds! I personally do not think she should be given a second chance.

Does freedom of speech apply to teachers who are responsible for educating our kids? To some degree but when you are made to look stupid by stupid High Schoolers it's time to take a good long look in the mirror and ask yourself if your really educating the kids.

This teacher is a complete hypocrite and the students are right to call her on it. This teacher should be punished but should be given a second to chance to ACTUALLY teach the kids instead of attempting to indoctrinate them with her ignorance.

Wow. Write this one down for the history books Ryan. LMAO. I totally agree with you. She is a hypocrite. I can tell just by listening to the video that this person would not have minded if they had been bad-mouthing Bush, but was completely offended by them voicing their opinion on Obama.

The truth of the matter is that as a social studies teacher she should allow her students to form their own opinions. It is her job to provide her students with facts, not her own opinions. Freedom of speech applies to all Americans, but a teacher should be so much more responsible because of her profession. She clearly needs to be reminded of her responsibilities.

Bad-mouthing a public official has never warranted being arrested. If that were the case I'd be doing a stint of 99+ in Huntsville. It was just completely irresponsible of the teacher to even suggest that that was the case.

I've known both liberal and conservative teachers to pull this crap, and have called them all on it. Their job is simple. Present the facts, and let them make up their own minds.

The facts ma'am. Just the facts.

Duly noted and I too would be locked up for multiple life sentences if it were a crime to publicly criticize public officials and politicians.
