A teacher at an English secondary school decided to teach her students a lesson about the dangers of social media, but her method has parents up in arms. The educator stalked the Facebook page of one of her 15-year-old female students to find a picture of the girl in a bikini. She then showed the shot to 100 students at a school assembly.
The teacher blew the photograph up and showed it to a room packed with teenagers to demonstrate the fact that anyone can access private photos once they are posted online. Needless to say, the young girl was mortified and reduced to tears. Her mother remarked:
“They took the photo from her Facebook profile – she put it on there last year. They used other photos of kids from the neck up but for some reason they thought it was OK to use a picture of my daughter in her bikini. Why did they have to use an image like that to make their point. Then they pointed her out in the assembly. She was really upset. I got a phone call from my daughter in the afternoon. When she told me about it I went from nought to sixty. I was so upset at work I was sent home. She’s really upset and hurt and this has knocked her confidence. She’s not the type of girl who likes attention like this. She’s a tom-boy, she doesn’t wear make-up and she doesn’t even have her ears pierced. It’s not often you even get her in a bikini.”
School administrators have since apologized to the student, who will remain unnamed so that whatever privacy she has left may be maintained. Apparently her teacher’s superiors had no prior knowledge of the stunt her teacher pulled. The school has since launched a formal investigation into the questionable conduct.
Should this teacher be fired for stalking an unsuspecting student’s Facebook page and subsequently sharing her scantily clad photos with the whole school? Tell us what you think in the comments section.
