It’s hard enough to pay attention during your classes already. Add the fact that you’ve seen how hot your teacher is in a bikini thanks to Facebook and other social media sites, and you’re suddently thinking more about asses than classes.
Schools are catching wind of the rising situation consisting of young female teachers posting various sexy images on Facebook. (hell, these pictures don’t have to be sexy at all. It is high school boys we’re talking about here. A JCPenney catalog image of a woman putting on makeup would do the job.)
Example: Model turned teacher Victoria James from Florida.
James was later fired for posting these bikini photos in 2013.
Unfortunately, most schools never do a little screening for these young staffers that they hire and only discover the photos after the students do. In 1996, the Supreme Court of Canada had ruled that teachers are expected to be held with a higher standard for the things they post on social media outside of work, citing that “Teachers are always on duty.”
Principals are also susceptible to punishment for posting any lude photos to social media. One female princpal was fired for posting an image of her visiting the Washington Monument. Oh, well that’s not too bad, right? Actually the image was of her friend posing like the monument was his boner while the principal and her friend pretended to give him a handjob.
Reminds us to put this one in the Lunch Break.
Did you really have to stick your tongue out too??
Nothing like learning about America’s most prized landmarks! Hey, at least it’s getting kids to pay attention (that’s a stretch, we know).
Of course these strict guidelines are coming from Canada and not the United States. The Washington Monument photo depicted staffers from a school in Edmonton, Alberta. In the US, we just kind of wing it and hope for the best. But the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) have advised teachers to “tread lightly when posting on social media, noting that inappropriate and sexual material either posted online or sent electronically can result in severe ramifications for teachers—even if the intention is harmless.”
It’s unfortunate, but goes to show you that some of the kids today are actually more mature than the “adults” teaching them.
