Officials have sent a memo to all employees, warning them that the material on those sites is public, and could possible get them fired. This comes after Charlotte news network WCNC discovered that several teachers had posted inappropriate comments and photos on Facebook.com.
Some of the comments included, “I hate my students,” and “I work in the ghetto of Charlotte.” One teacher was suspended with pay and could be fired. Four others are also being disciplined.
In the memo, CMS made it clear that “employees should use good judgement … and not post items that would diminish their professionalism or discredit their ability to maintain the respect of students.”
