Embattled Teacher: Blog Spoke Truth About Pupils

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania teacher suspended from her job over profanity-laced posts on her blog says she was speaking the truth about students who are unwilling to work hard at school.

Central Bucks East High School teacher Natalie Munroe tells the Bucks County Courier Times that it seems there is "less accountability on students" while teachers are forced to explain everything they do.

Munroe's posts called students "disengaged, lazy whiners." One featured comments she wished she could put on report cards, including "rat-like" and "dresses like a streetwalker."

Munroe believes someone dug up the blog to start trouble. Her lawyer says she never named the school and identified herself only as "Natalie M."

District officials say Munroe could be dismissed. Attorney Steve Rovner says they have no basis for firing her.
