I read with horror the recent front page of the Palm Beach Post about teacher Susan Oyer, and by implication an expose of the way teachers in PB County are protected when they act unprofessionally.



MY HORROR STEMS AS MUCH FROM THE NATURE OF THIS STORY THAN FROM WHAT MS. OYER DID. THIS IS A HIT PIECE!!!! I am shocked that the paper would publish front page, total of 2 1/2 pages of this terrible piece of journalism. THIS IS A ONE SIDED HIT JOB. IF IT WERE HONEST IT WOULD HAVE INCLUDED COMMENTS BY THE PRINCIPAL, THE SCHOOL BOARD SPOKESPERSON, AND THE TEACHER HERSELF. IT WOULD ALSO INCLUDE STATISTICS ON STUDENT DISCIPLINE, SUSPENSIONS, CRIME, ETC. There are very bad things going on in some schools. Maybe Ms. Oyer knows this and is disgusted. I am NOT defending her, just longing for excellent journalism.

Teachers in Palm Beach County are overwhelmingly hard working people who respect their students and who try to prepare them for the future. I know. I was one of them.

P.S. In September 2015 the Post published an article praising Ms. Oyer and her students for raising money to help Haiti and other underdeveloped areas. https://www.palmbeachpost.com/articl...news/812068268

Very strange that you would complain about an article but not link it while citing an irrelevant article from 2015. Here is the Palm Beach Post article as well as one from the Sun Sentinel for anyone interested in reading about the subject. This does not seem like the type person whose judgement would be acceptable in many careers, particularly public education.

While I note that you complain about the article you neglected to mention the final sentence regarding Oyer which reads "She did not respond to a message seeking comment Monday." The Sun-Sentinel article, which paints a darker picture of this woman's history also states "Neither Oyer nor her lawyer could be reached Friday, despite attempts by phone."

I see nothing in either article that would appear to indict anyone but a single teacher with an apparent proclivity for failing to control her own public utterances.
