I would fire him. Period. A 1st year teacher with that lack of judgement...bye bye.

And I have bigger problems than this in my school as well. The problem is, that if it were a veteran teacher, they would be protected by the union.

1st year teacher....dismissed without any reason at all is legal.

I am pretty much with dread on this (and thanks for changing your avatar)


it is best that he resigned

a new teacher, should be more careful

parents do have the right to have input on what their children can view

peer pressure is strong enough,
young girls do not need to watch a film that makes fun of virginity

i do realize that 95% or more of these kids go to R rated movies on the week ends
that happens on their parents watch
and is their responsibility.


i also think any R rated film should require parental permission,
Shindler and Private Ryan included
there are plenty of WW2 documentary films with real footage
that are far better tools for learning
than that Hollywood sentimentalized crap

No, I was only equating them as both being R rated movies but didn't do a good job of it. The lesson is, as always, I'm an idiot.

No you are not....

I would allow Shindler's List R rated with a parental consent form.

When I was in High School I remember needing parental permission to see films on Neuremburg.

I am still trying to understand why you (NOT YOU...BUT YOU MEANING THE TEACHER)would show this particular movie in Spanish class.

so i'm not saying that this was right...I know a lot of you are questioning why he played the movie without even having a reason, but as a high school student i can honestly say there are a lot of teachers who the day after midterms or finals will just show a movie, that usually has nothing to do with any lessons we may be learning about. i know the day after midterms last year my english teacher showed us family guy!

When I was in high school we were shown several films (documentaries) with lots of footage from the various death camps. They were very stark and graphic. I don't recall any special forms or notification going out to parents. We were told we could leave the room if it was overwhelming though.

if this guy was a young teacher, first year or two on the job, then i think he should just be suspended, repremanded, and allowed to teach again... if this guy's a fully tenured teacher who's been around the block once, it's just absolute stupidity.

We watched Jailbait in drama class in Grade 10 to kill time at the end of the term.

And somehow, society didn't fall apart when a bunch of 15 and 16 year-olds saw a movie with sexual content in it...how could this be...?

Just because it happened does not make it right.....

Headache....you have basically two years to get rid of any substandard teacher. After that...it takes about two to three years to remove a substandard teacher.

AS an administrator, the long term ramifications of allowing a teacher to continue with a lapse in judgement like that is unnaceptable to me. I would not take the chance with potentially five classes of students passing through the doors.

And if his judgement is lacking in this area...I wonder what else he has the potential to fuck up.

maybe the problem with education is how much time is spent "KILLING TIME"?

In my area, (Chicagoland) an administrator can not fire a tenured teacher unless they do something illegal or immoral. "Substandard" teachers included.
There was a teacher at my high school who used to read the text book to the class from her desk. The school couldn't get rid of her.
I just don't think showing this movie should end someone's career. We're not talking Basic Instinct here.
