TV Land’s Teachers

TV Land Teachers

Television producers chose a sassy group of “teachers” to slice and dice the integrity of the teaching profession. Teachers will premiere on January 13th on TV Land. If the previews are any indication, the vulgar subject matter should alarm parents and concern all those who desire not to denigrate hard working and underpaid professional teachers.

Even though the story line centers around six elementary teachers, there are discussions with students, parents, and co-workers about sex, lying, sleeping around, and using weekends for romantic interludes. As schools across our nation face greater challenges, do we need to be entertained by a show designed to cast teachers in such a disrespectful way?

A generation ago, television programs about teachers most often reflected the passion, commitment, and desire to help students succeed. Obviously, TV Land’s Teachers think sex sells no matter who pays the cost. Shows glorifying sex, drugs, and seedy scenarios will only further desensitize viewers. One Million Moms has a petition to urge TV Land Network to drop this show before it hits the airwaves.
