And here I thought we were talking about hot teachers ............

OT

Don't get the paper but I absolutely agree with the logic. If the kids can't smoke on the property - neither can the teachers. Govt buildings, we low-life staff can't smoke on the govt property - neither can management .....

I work for the Federal Government and we ARE allowed to smoke on the property. There is no smoking allowed in the building though. You must step right outside the door.

See my place where I'm living its a smoking place but if there's non smokers that come over I just go to my room which is on the far opposite side of my living room and smoke there to respect the non smokers its much better then smoking in the same room as them if it bothers them.

First off I am a smoker and my soap box is broken so i'll have to relay this from ground level.

I was not a fan of the far ranging smoking ban at bars..... until recently. I went to grand forks U.S. and they allow smoking in the bars. I walked into one and dam it smelled like a mixture of arm pit, ash tray and stale air....

That made me realize how beneficial it is up here. But how far do we extend public respect at the cost of private liberties ? Smoking in cars with kids will soon be "outlawed"... now I see the argument for disallowing teachers to smoke where there may be a "monkey see - monkey -do " thing going on ....

But won't the kids see them on the sidewalk , off school property ? How is that better ? Can the gov ? or better any employer force a personal lifestyle change ? How far will that go ?

I know we're talking smoking.... smoker / non smoker ... But what would happen if other unhealthy lifestyle examples were thrown into the mix..????
Let's say eating habits / body style .... sexual orientation ? religious beliefs ?

Where is this fuzzy line ?
Is it solid and firm in one area yet flexible and variable in others ?
Where should the government stop ?

My way of thinking is similar to your's edjoecdn. Someone's smoking habit is no different than an eating habit, religious belief or lifestyle. Once we allow someone else to dictate what should be our choice....Well what did people go to war for in the first place?

I think the main difference is that bad eating habits MIGHT influence other people if they decide to start eating the same way you do. However, smoking does influence other people in that being nearby it causes health risks.

That's the key in most of these smoking debates. Whether I agree with all the decisions or not, they are all based on the idea that in the same way we wouldn't let people wander the streets poisoning the drinks of everyone they passed, we don't want people smoking in enclosed public spaces.

It is just NOT the same at all as religious belief or lifestyle. They generally don't harm other people. And when they do, THEY become against the law as well.

Smoking teachers hmmmm.....

Never tried that yet, I'd think it would be too time-consuming. Boiling is so much easier.
