In New York City, teachers, educators at all levels, and school staff members are angry, confused, demoralized, and unhappy with the policies currently put into place by the Mayor and the schools' Chancellor. All sides are grumbling.
I'm not referring to the COVID-19 pandemic 2020. This anger, frustration, and yes, despair, started about 16 years ago when the online rumor mill and mobbing became weaponized. The internet allowed a single person the ability to alter and/or destroy another person's life and ability to get employment after a false report of misconduct was cited. Truth does not matter, computer skills and social media connections, do. I work in this area and have been documenting how this works with NYC teachers, school administrators, and Courts, both State and Federal.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) addresses this problem and also the question of what speech is actually protected in the workplace. See the post below.
