Is #TeacherBae Too Sexy For Her Class?
ATLANTA, GA – A fourth grade teacher is in hot water after she caused an uproar on social media over her allegedly inappropriate attire. Today’s episode of the Freedom Report podcast analyzes the body standards, gendered and racial issues, as well as puritanical influences at play in the story. Patrice Brown’s Instagram account blew up to the tune of 214k followers in the wake of the scandal. But is this a classic case of “hate us cause they ain’t us?” Or does #TeacherBae need to tone it down when it comes to the style of outfits she wears for her 10-year-old students?
All this and more, including special guest Ashley Lewandowski to comment on during this very special episode of the Freedom Report podcast!

  • I have a B.A. in English and I work at an after school program. I’ve been applying for jobs and going to interviews lately and I always lie and say that I want to go back to school and get my masters and teaching credential. Actually I don’t want to do it at all. There are lots of private/alternative/co-op schools in my area and they all say that credential isn’t required (just preferred) but I’m having a difficult time gaining experience. Has anyone here tried to get into teaching without a credential? Any advice?

  • Its completely ok to have an opinion. It actually is pretty important. But teachers shouldn’t teach their opinion as the truth. I have to face this behavior everyday at my school in switzerland. As a proud libertarian, i was very shocked as my teacher showed the anticapitalist, enviromentalist movie called “tomorrow”. There were no discussions about the problematic points the movie made. It was taught as the truth. The only truth. The tides turned, as i got to speak to a journalist, who was interviewing me about a political event, i went to. I described my problem and the whole thing got published. Of course it was shortened and the most important points were cut out, because they were probably to “aggressive” . But then (after the article appeared in the newspaper) the leftist/socialist behavior of my teacher disappeared, meaning we stopped watching “tomorrow” and about all the future controversial subject, we held debates with the whole class.   The main point of my little essay is, that we don’t have to make non-neutral-teaching illegal, but expose them with newspapers and television. In switzerland, this works perfectly.

  • Gentlemen, that age old question concerning of male style about how we hold up our trousers arises again. I myself frequently don suspenders, having both clip on and buttoned. Today’s men, however, nearly always sport a belt even though the leather dress belt was only a recent staple compared to suspenders. Please comment your preference.

  • Everyone seems to have an opinion when it comes to child behavior and I would really appreciate it if only people who had professional experience working with kids responded. I just started working in a public elementary school at their before school day care. I don’t teach anything. I mainly supervise the kids at the day care, walk them to the cafeteria for breakfast, and then walk them to their classroom. It’s in a nice area in San Francisco. I have one student that is just really bad and violent. Just today, he choked another kid for cutting in front of him in line when we were walking to the cafeteria. Then I heard him threaten to punch another kid “in the face and the eye.” Then he started a fight with another student but the other one grabbed his arms so they were just locked in that position. The kid is only 5 years old! I really didn’t know what to do so I just split them up and let it go. I only work there for two hours a day and everything that happened occurred within 20 minutes. So my question is, what would you do in this situation? Why do you think some kids are so violent? Is there another explanation beyond experiencing violence at home?
