Default Question about sons school teacher and privacy?

Sons' teacher sends out blast emails with everyone's email in plain sight. I asked him to use the BBC function and he agreed then about three weeks later he forgot so I asked him again. His answer then was I will just delete you off the list. I was ok with that as I can get that info off of his website. This was working fine till I just got another email from him with all the mails in plain sight.My Mom things I am being picky, I do not want my email out to people I do not know. I find it a huge privacy issue. I am thinking of talking to the principle tomorrow. Do you think I am right or wrong? Comment or click poll.

I've never really gave any thought to something like that but I guess it does bring up some quasi-valid concern. Personally, I have two emails for this reason. I have the 'junk email' email address that I give to alot of people, newsletters, registering to websites, etc. and then I have one that I do not use other then from people I consider close friends or family.

You could always create one to give to him that you don't care if people see it or not.

No reason to stir up shit with your kids teacher when the problem is easily avoided.

Your email is already out there, get over it.

As already stated, make another email address and use it just for your kids school stuff, otherwise you will be having this problem every year. Lighten up.

Yes that is what I am prob going to do. I just find it hard to believe that there is not an IT policy on it.

Half the world has my email address, no problems yet. The other half the world could get it, but probably doesn't care.

If this is what you have to worry about, then you are either the 1% of white people problems or you're worried about the wrong stuff.

i don't understand what bad is going to come from this? I mean its just your email and most people who have even the slightest ability on a computer can find it if they want. Other than getting some annoying emails form a fellow parent that you wish to not communicate with I do not see the problem. I guess one of your child's classmate's dad could be the CEO of a email spamming corporation and you will be receiving your free Viagra and Cialis offers every day, but the likelihood of that is quite low.

You guys are dumb, his email is out there now. That if the first thing identity thieves go for when stealing someone's identity. If I were you I'd demand the teacher get fired, and the school pay for a life time subscription to lifelock

I'd prefer that a teacher or anyone use the bcc function when emailing everyone in the class. But I use an email that is set up for that kind of stuff and not tied to anything I give a damn about....so it doesn't really matter in the end.

Not really a privacy concern, but if another parent does a "reply to all", they could potentially send something to all parents that should have only been sent to the teacher... Then, you get another parent using reply to all to tell them they made a mistake... Then, another parent uses reply to all saying "do not use reply to all"... and things spiral into complete idiocy from there. I've seen it many times with work emails. It's best to use BCC for any email sent to multiple people, unless there's an explicit need for cross-communication.
