Is it appropriate for a teacher to wear a shirt with a news station on it as way of advertising ?

would my WKRP t-shirt cause an issue?


That is a great theme song.

In the good old days when they just reported events factually it wouldn’t have mattered….


Could it be that the teacher visited the news station and was given a complementary shirt that they proudly wanted to wear it? The teacher might not look at it as a form of advertising.


This poor teacher - first the 2A bumper sticker has got to go from his car and now his faux news T shirt has got to go.



It would depend on the faculty handbook I would imagine.


At my school we just can't wear logos that have sexual words or symbols. Anything that is offensive or inappropriate. News station should be okay


What do you mean by advertising? Does the teacher work for the news station?


For advertising? At that point wouldn’t any number of apparel be inappropriate? All sorts of clothing has brands on display. I think this is a ridiculous notion unless something is inappropriately written or the station is something like Howard Stern. I have a shirt I got for winning an award from a local news station. If I wear that, is it appropriate? I also sometimes wear the t-shirts from restaurants and businesses I’ve been to around the US…is that advertising? If t-shirts are allowed, this is perfectly fine. Sheesh


Yeah those slogans should not be okay. But even just having Fox News or CNN shirts shouldn’t be an issue.

I don’t want to assume, but I imagine the station is something the OP has an issue with. Could be wrong.

Your school and faculty handbook can answer that. There will sure be a list of the things that you are not supposed to do which includes advertising or promotion.

Why do you care? If there is a dress code, then admin may choose to enforce it or not. Of course, that is depending on if they like you or not. Just like anything in life.

Yes. Why would it not be? As long as there is no policy that prohibits it, it's alright.

Hi Sharks

After nine months, I'm still not used to working as a salaried employee. Ten years of hourly work and simply making sacrifices for my employer have really trained me to be a work machine. Now, I'm able to take a day off for a needed dental procedure, but I can't stop the anxiety from bubbling up. I know it's silly, but somehow it's been ingrained in me that a good work ethic means always being at work when scheduled unless I'm literally contagious. Help.

Still struggling a bit w breakup from early December. I posted earlier abt the guy who wanted me to dress femmy/sexy and ignored my issues. 3 months. I made a list of the top 5 reasons it wasn't working out for me and still I'm second guessing myself. I did break up by phone and felt good about it. I clearly told him the reasons. He called back abt hour later and ended up yelling at me about Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn's style and saying he wouldn't call again. Cont'

Deloitte India Vs USI? Have offers from both the firms? Hike is better in USI.

Hello Fishes,
I am currently interviewing at EY GDS and HR discussion is done.
But the HR is saying they can offer only 36% hike.

How should I proceed with this.

Incentive ideas needed!
I’m in charge of our school incentive program for this upcoming year to keep the kids into virtual learning. We are distance learning until at least October.

Kind of curious, how many of you have any male secretaries in your schools?
I have taught in four different buildings in my career, some had multiple secretaries. Never had a male secretary.


Those of you teaching elementary students simultaneously (remote/in-person): Are all your students allowed to use Chromebook’s/Ipads while you teach? Also, are you using a webcam?


What are the rates of staff & student absences this week at your school? The halls are basically EMPTY in my building and there still seems to be not even a consideration of remote again.


Any ideas for how instructional aides(PCA/IA) can be utilized during online learning?


As a young teacher do you keep your age hidden from students in order to avoid losing their respect?


Administrators: some advice. Considering the vast differences in districts, it can take a few tries for teachers to find their true “school home” where philosophies & values click. On applications, what “Reason for leaving” have YOU seen that come across as warnings or red flags? And, on the flip side, which “Reasons for Leaving” have you seen that are totally relatable/understandable and wouldn’t think anything of?
