Teacher accidentally sends topless pic to students' iPads, kids suspended for seeing it

ANDERSON, Ind. - Some students at Highland Middle School in Anderson got a peek of their teacher's bare breasts on a school-issued iPad while in class.

Those students have been suspended and threatened with expulsion.

The school district said it has taken preventative action against the teacher, but they wouldn't specify what action, and she is still a member of the school staff.

"The picture showed up of the teacher topless," said Joshua Troutt, 13, describing the incident that occurred at Highland Middle School.

He and three other students were in their classroom, playing a game on a school-issued iPad.

He said one of the students pressed a button, and a photograph with his teacher's bare chest was revealed.

"It's not our fault that she had the photo on there," Troutt said. "We couldn't do anything not to look at it, if it just popped up when he pressed the button. It was her fault that she had the photo on there. Her iPhone synched to it. She had to have pressed something to make all of her photos synch on there."

"Assistant Superintendent Beth Clark told RTV6 the technology use policy was followed and what happened was quite by accident.

Nevertheless, Troutt and other students have been suspended and threatened with expulsion.

Clark would not do an on-camera interview, but she said the students' punishment will not be changed. If parents disagree with it, they can appeal.

Thank the Lord it wasn't me that was said to, I probably would have had to be restrained from going across the desk at her.

Stupid teacher. She should be fired straight away along with whoever is threatening the kids.

It’s become obvious that about a quarter or so of public school employees are mentally disabled and should be no where in the direct vacinity of a kid.

Both the teacher and the Asst. Sup. should be fired — teacher for the act; Asst. Sup. for stupidity. The kids should be reinstated.

Well, I believe that the two most important questions are:

1.) Was she hot?

2.) May we see the pics?

There has to be more to the story than this. It’s not believable that the students would be suspended if this just popped up. They must have been in a directory they shouldn’t have been in or something.

Here in Indiana they’re going heavy with iPads.
Significant cost savings over textbooks.

I realize Apple is on the FR unacceptable list, but the textbook publishers probably fail on the same criteria.

Huntsville, Al city schools doing the same thing. Supposed to cost less than books. Problem is no lock down capabilities. Students apparently allowed to go wherever they want on the world wide web.

My two kids cost me $300 this year in textbook rentals between the two of them, I am so sick of Indiana doing this, for 14 years I’ve had to pay some ludicrous price for a POS old worn out old textbook.

On a side note, why the heck did they go with iPads and not Kindle? Heck of a price difference there...

You’ve obviously never worked in a school and apparently didn’t read the article either. The teacher SYNCED her iPhone with the school supplied iPads, probably not intentionally, and had the topless photo of herself on her iPhone. The discipline action is entirely believable given most schools “zero tolerance” policy on so many things. So also is the administration trying to protect the teacher. Let’s just say todays public schools aren’t exactly staffed with the best and the brightest.

Seems to me that elimination of the public school system altogether would be the most significant cost savings of them all.

Well Kindle is Amazon, and even more "off limits" by FR rules. Bezos gave 2.5 million to the Wash St. gay marriage inititiative. Apple's biggest fault is that it's run by a gay guy.

Controlling where they student go on the web is the function of a content filter, not a function of the computing device. The only exception is if the device uses a 3G or 4G connection that bypasses the district network. In that case, an agent can be installed on the device to enforce filtering policies.

Yeah, I would be a whole lot more accepting of a basic model Kindle. I guess not being able to access porn means the kids would trash a Kindle.

When I was in school we were responsible for taking care of our textbooks. I guess responsibility isn't a priority these days.

How many times do women have to be told that if you take a naked picture or make a porn movie sooner or later it will get out.

Why did she have a topless picture of herself on her phone anyway?

I do not have to worry about a naked picture of my wife getting out, she would never allow such a picture to be taken.

Sorry. Nobody puts a topless picture of themselves anywhere by accident.

But the teacher’s name is being withheld because she is the “victim”, here. The innocent thirteen-year-old student’s name is in the picture, but the teacher’s name must be protected.

The only time my children see the inside of a public school is when I take them with me when I vote.

I agree. We definitely need to review ALL of the evidence in order too determine "guilt."

For those of you that wish to flame me because of the tongue in cheek double standard......flame away. I don't condone teachers having relations or sending inappropriate material to minors. That said, there is absolutely no reason we can't have good fun at the offenders' expense. Yes, I'm a chauvinistic pig.....if this chick would've gotten a real job as a housewife instead of in the workforce where men belong, this wouldn't have happened. (this post is like a chose your own adventure novel - you pick where I'm being sarcastic)

Email contact for the school system:

I hope they get hammered. The teacher should be fired and potentially jailed, whether she sexted with intent or not. She obviously doesn’t have enough good judgement to be teaching children. If there isn’t more to this story, I’m aghast they’re punishing the children who are the real victims of this incident.

They either enabled photo streaming from iCloud to the teacher's account, or accessed a photo library. In the latter case, teacher's fault for having it there. In the former case, if it's so easy for them to go to settings and enable photo streaming, then it's the teacher's fault for leaving her iCloud account tied to the iPad. Unless the kids hacked her iCloud account password to set up the photo streaming. Not likely. I would fault the teacher for not disabling her iCloud account connection to the iPad before allowing others to have access to it.
