Other teachers discussing student performance on exams
You are in the teachers' lounge and cannot help but overhear several other teachers discussing student performance on exams, including student names and scores. The teachers' lounge is not very private; office personnel wander in to get coffee, and the door often stands open even though students pass by regularly and can overhear anything said. What would you do?

I would politely ask the teachers to stop discussing these things; reminding them that they are private and confidential. I would remind the teachers that students can hear when they are passing by.

I would politely ask the teachers to not be so forthcoming with student names. However, discussing data is beneficial to all teachers. Sometimes we can find out new, innovative ways to teach our students by speaking with our peer. The only way to know that another teacher did well teaching a skill is through the discussion of data.

I think that these discussions could prove useful as long as no student's names are given. Getting input from other teachers about methods of teaching or different homework assignments can be useful to improve students scores. As long as the conversation is completely constructive and no students are mentioned specifically then these conversations can be beneficial.
