Student ranks thinning for blogging Pa. teacher
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - August 24, 2011 (WPVI) -- More than 200 parents have told a Pennsylvania school district they don't want their children taught by a teacher who called students "frightfully dim" and "disengaged, lazy whiners" on her personal blog.
Central Bucks East High School Superintendent Robert Laws say he expects the district to get "a lot more requests" from parents who want to keep their children away from English teacher Natalie Munroe.
The Doylestown Intelligencer reports 62 requests came from parents whose children were scheduled to be in Munroe's classes. District officials had estimated Munroe would have 90 students in her three classes.
Munroe was suspended in February after district officials learned of her blog.
Laws says a substitute will likely be hired to take on the students who won't be taught by Monroe. Classes begin Tuesday.
