WATER COOLER TALK: Carol Thebarge, a New Hampshire substitute teacher, has been fired because she refused to “un-friend” students that she was friends with on Facebook.
Thebarge, who taught for more than 30 years in the school system, said a school administrator gave her an ultimatum to remove all students she was friends with on Facebook because a 29-year old fellow teacher, Christopher LeBlanc, was accused of sexually assaulting a student in a classroom.
Carol Thebarge said she was going to miss the positive relationships she has established with her students. She claims that they taught her stuff and vise versa.
Are you ok with your child’s teacher being Facebook friends with your child?
