Leigh Anne Arthur, who teaches mechatronics at a South Carolina high school, was forced to resign because a student who’d stolen her phone found and broadcast a semi-nude photo of the teacher via text and social media.
David Eubanks, the interim superintendent, said it was the teacher’s fault because her phone was unlocked.
“Students had access to very inappropriate pictures of a teacher,” he said. “I think we have a right to privacy, but when we take inappropriate information or pictures, we had best make sure it remains private.”
Arthur said she took the picture for her husband as a Valentine’s gift.
“Eubanks said he was unsure whether the student who took Arthur’s phone would face any discipline,” reports The State.
I shouldn’t be surprised at the depths of administrative stupidity, but — really!
