Natalie Munroe, who teaches English in the middle-class Central Bucks school district of Feasterville in Pennsylvania state asked why today's children were so unmotivated.

She was later suspended by her school.

In the profanity-laced blog, which has since been taken down, the 30-year-old called her pupils "disengaged, lazy whiners" and complained that they were "just generally annoying" and "disobedient, disrespectful oafs".

Online comments applauded her for taking a tough love approach or attacked her for verbal abuse.

Ms Munroe attracted media attention, and backers have started a Facebook group.

The teacher did not use her full name or identify her students or school. The school has refused to comment.
