Arizona: Bill Introduced Targeting Teachers with Dirty Mouths
So, this is what it has finally come to? Passing laws to rein in immature, Libtarded teachers who don’t understand why parents are freaking out when little Johnny comes home home from school with a whole new set of vocabulary “skills.”
Might I suggest immature teachers buy some Orbit gum?
Bill aims to censor Arizona teachers’ speech
Group wants them to comply with FCC
Arizona’s teachers better watch their mouths.
A group of Republican state lawmakers is backing legislation that would require teachers to limit their speech to words that comply with Federal Communications Commission regulations on what can be said on TV or radio.
Personally, I wouldn’t use the FCC as a benchmark. After all, the FCC doesn’t appear to have an official list of obscene words. Instead, they go by usage in context. That’s fairly nebulous, if you ask me, and allows my four-year-old daughter to overhear such lovely words as, “bitch,” “damn,” “hell,” and a few others that I don’t approve of—even in the commercials!
Senate Bill 1467, sponsored by Sen. Lori Klein, R-Anthem, establishes penalties for anyone teaching in a public school who violates the FCC standards. Penalties range from a one-week suspension for a first offense to being fired for a third offense.
Klein said the bill stems from constituent complaints about teachers in local high schools using inappropriate language in front of students.
“Students are young and impressionable and teachers should not be using four-letter words in the classroom,” Klein said.
Senate Minority Leader David Schapira, D-Tempe, a former high-school teacher and current Tempe Union High School District Governing Board member, said he understands the concern but not the proposed solution.
“In K-12 classrooms, teachers shouldn’t be using those words with their students,” he said. “But the school districts should implement the policies.”
