Don’t Just Charge the Student, Reinstate the Teacher

Charging the 16 year old who stole a teacher’s phone and disseminated her private photos isn’t enough. The teacher involved should have never been asked to resign, and deserves her job back:

 

The teacher of the 16-year-old who distributed semi-naked pictures of her around school has said she is “relieved” he is being held accountable for his actions with felony charges now against him.

Leigh Ann Arthur’s unlocked phone was taken from her desk by one of her students who found partially naked pictures of his teacher on it. He is accused of then taking photos of the images using his own phone before distributing them around the class.

Ms Arthur says she was then forced to resign after the school told her contract would be terminated if she didn’t quit.

Four of the photos were also printed out and put in Ms Arthur’s letterbox with a “threatening” message on the back of one of them, the teacher has said, according to ABC News.

Her student is now facing felony charges for violating the Computer Crimes Act and for “aggravated voyeurism”, according to police chief Sam White.

Talk About “Stealing” a Teacher’s Livelihood!

March 2, 2016

 

 

A teacher is forced to resign because of private photos on her phone which was stolen from her by a student who then shared its content.

What on earth is going on with society?

Since when is the victim the culprit and the thief inconsequential?

 

A South Carolina teacher was forced to resign after a student stole her phone and shared her nude pictures.

Leigh Anne Arthur, 33, a former mechatronics (a blend of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer control and information technology) teacher at the Union County Career and Technology Center, doesn’t think she should be held responsible for the theft, which occurred while she was patrolling the halls.

Arthur, who took the partially nude pictures for her husband on Valentine’s Day, told WYFF that she knows who the student is because he is one of her 16-year-old students that she taught in her mechatronics class. 

The student, who had also warned her that something bad was coming, sent the images to other students through text messages and social media, according to WSPA

Arthur said the student told her that ‘your day of reckoning is coming’.  

When school officials got wind of the situation, they took action against Arthur. They gave her two choices, resign or the district will terminate her, according to Union County schools superintendent David Eubanks. 

He told The State that there is a ‘right to privacy, but when we take inappropriate information or pictures, we had best make sure it remains private’.

‘Students had access to very inappropriate pictures of a teacher,’ he said. 

Arthur resigned last week. 

School officials are unsure how many students viewed the teacher’s picture, but Eubanks said Arthur’s phone was unlocked when it was swiped.
