Read this piece of news about a group of teachers who expressed their true opinions about their students and their families in a whatsapp group (in a non-PC way), and were caught red-handed, after the comments in the group were leaked to the educational authorities.
- To what extent is whatsapp a private tool? Are opinions and comments on whatsapp within the public or the private sphere?
- Are the measures taken appropriate for their action?
- What would happen if students’ comments about their teachers on their whatsapp groups were read? What about parents’ comments about teachers, or their children’s schoolmates?
