Just as students, once inside the school doors public educators do not have the same rights they enjoy as citizens outside the school. At the same time, teachers are often expected to effectively communicate with a wide variety of public staekholders. Finding the balance between encouraging teacher communication and interaction within the school and community, protecting the rights of teachers, and the legal obligation to provide an orderly and efficient school can be difficult.
