Teacher Punished For Blogging About Kids Reinstated

A Pennsylvania teacher was suspended over her blog. School officials discovered she was writing about her students, calling them "frightfully dim" and "disengaged, lazy whiners." Now the Intelligencer of Doylestown says she's been reinstated — but with a kind of poetic justice. Her lawyer says she'd rather work at a different school, but she was sent back to Central Bucks East High School, teaching the same classes she apparently disliked.
