The rise in teacher doxxing has created a paranoid teaching environment. Some are able to shake off the abuse and move forward; others have grown quiet. Social media, where many of the attacks -- death threats & vitriol occur -- offers little defense for teachers. The ease of internet anonymity means that, with few exceptions, it’s extremely difficult for law enforcement to discover who leaves death threats. Teachers sometimes file reports with campus police, but arrests appear to be rare. Teachers rely on school policy and state education code, which often means the issue is resolved with the school rather than law enforcement.'Free speech is and will remain one of our key values.Our faculty must be able to say and write things – including things that provoke some or make others uncomfortable – up to the very limits of the law.” Read this informative and troubling article.

We who write here, and our publisher, Rob Kall, know how truth and journalists who report it, are being targeted, so this statement by the publisher of this reader supported site that published this article is no surprise, but is so disturbing:

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

As to the need to remove the voices of genuine teachers : Shared knowledge that MAKES DEMOCRACY POSSIBLE. An ignorant citizenry is the goal.

In my series here at OEN, I write about the privatization of American schools as the plot to end an informed citizenry.

Thus the demolition of public education is CRUCIAL!


THE ploy IN THE PLOT TO END PUBLIC EDUCATION and create an ignorant citizenry, is to remove all the experienced teacher-practitioners (who know WHAT LEARNING LOOKS LIKE, and how to enable the learning of real skills.

TFA and other novices replace experienced, educated professional and will follow the mandates of these business managers.

Of course the schools will fail, and then Gates,Pearson Walton and the rest of the EDUCATIONAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX can dictate a curricula that dumbs people down and changes what they know about history and science.

Rdding the schools of the genuine professional teacher-practitoners -- WHO KNOW WHAT LEARNING LOOKS LIKE. allows the oligarchs to dumb the people down.
