There are reasons why you should always understand how technology works before taking scandalous pictures of yourself and sending them to your lover. You don’t know where those pictures are going to end up. You might snap a naughty picture with your iPhone that then gets sent to your iCloud Photostream that is then synced with your school’s iPad. Then your students might be playing around on that school iPad, find the pic of you lookin’ saucy, and then all hell breaks loose.
That’s exactly what happened to one middle school teacher. The weird twist to the story is that the teacher didn’t get fired or suspended for having nearly pornographic photos of herself on a school device. The students that found it go suspended instead.
The teacher wasn’t fully topless in the photos, but police that investigated the incident said she was partially exposed from the neck down.The four seventh grade boys of Highland Middle School in Anderson, Indiana were suspended by school officials because even though the teacher gave them the iPad, they weren’t given permission to be using the iPhoto app.
Here’s how Anderson Community Schools spun the story in their official press release:
“A teacher gave certain students access to a school-owned iPad, which had been assigned to her, for a precise purpose of working within two different applications. The students explored the iPad and went to unauthorized applications, one of which was iPhotos. Unbeknownst to the teacher, a picture which was on the teacher’s personal cell phone had been stored in iCloud and therefore streamed to her school-owned iPad.”
It sounds like the four boys got the short end of things to us. What do you think? Should the teacher have received a punishment for her misuse of technology? Or are the boys really at fault? Tell us in the comments.
