Are you being walled off?

The Code of Alabama prohibits any public school employee from using any school property or school time for political activities.

What does that mean?

Does it mean a public school teacher cannot have a political discussion with  another teacher in the school cafeteria during the lunch hour?  Does it mean a public school teacher cannot use his or her smartphone during the school day to get information about a political event?  Does it mean that a public school teacher cannot go into the school library and read the editorial page of a newspaper concerning a candidate for public office?  Does it mean a teacher cannot use a school computer to read the editorial online?

What if a political email gets into the teacher's school email inbox?  Can the teacher read the email?

If you are a public school teacher, you may want to read this link related to the foregoing.
