Could You Be Fired Over Your Facebook Page? Plus, a Mom's Double Life
Should what you post online about your personal life affect your professional life?
Anderson speaks with a teacher, a Girl Scout leader, and a cheerleading coach, who were all fired for revealing personal details of their lives online.
In New York City, after a 12-year-old girl drowned on a class field trip to the beach, a teacher from another school was fired after her Facebook posts became public. These posts included, “After today, I’m thinking the beach sounds like a wonderful idea for my 5th graders. I HATE THEIR GUTS! They are all the devil's spawn.” Anderson hears from the teacher and finds out if she regrets what she wrote.
Start the conversation early: If your child’s teacher posted an inappropriate comment on his or her personal Facebook page, should the teacher be fired? Why or why not? Also, is it appropriate for a Girl Scout leader to be involved with a satanic website?
