Scandal Over Olivia Sprauer Bikini Photos:
It appears like just about every week we hear a minumum of one story in the news of a teacher (typically young and female) being fired or detained for engaging in unacceptable behavior (usually sexual) with a student.
Mathematically speaking, it shouldn’t be any surprise that a teacher caught in a compromising position with a student is female. Based on the National Center for Education Statistics, about three quarters of public school teachers are female. Teaching has, like nursing and additional areas, long been considered a female profession. Which is why I very nearly passed over the narrative of Olivia Sprauer, a youthful, female teacher in Florida who was fired a few weeks ago for allegedly improper conduct.
Ms. Sprauer’s case, however, is different. She was not fired for nude resort with a pupil. Nor was she fired for appearing in a pornographic film. Instead, she was fired for having professional photographs taken of herself wearing a bikini.

Ms. Sprauer obviously understood she was taking a risk by being photographed in skimpy swimwear. Employment contracts for many classes of public employees comprise conduct clauses which dictate that behaviour outside of work hours can be taken into account when rating general job performance. Teachers are (perhaps unfairly) more changed by these conduct clauses, since their primary audience is kids and it is presumed that children will be more negatively impacted by alleged unethical behaviour on the part of their teachers than fellow grownups would.
Besides parents, the adults that kids spend most of their time with are teachers. As a parent of two young children in public school, I understand (and expect) that teachers have a role model component to their own jobs. But I can also categorically state that if among my sons’ and daughters’ teachers (who are both female) did some bikini modeling privately, I wouldn’t be disturbed at all.
As naturists, we understand that morality is an enormous grey area, and community standards vary from state to state and region to region. So maybe we’re not as disturbed by bikini photographs in Ny as they’ve been in Florida (oh, the irony!).
Though I think we can all concur the first thing we desire from our teachers is competence. Did Ms. Sprauer’s outside-of-work image sessions impair her ability to teach? If she’d been surreptitiously photographed wearing a bikini at a public sand, would that happen to be unethical actions? Or was it simply a problem that she modeled and got paid for it? As long as she was effectively facilitating learning in the classroom, what does it matter?
Actions policies are essential to many jobs, and can be especially important in http://nudismphotos.net/posts/i-never-told-my-wife/ . My wife has been a professor at a couple of different universities, and most higher education associations prohibit relationships between professors/staff and students even though the pupils are generally over the age of 18 and so lawfully adults.
Difficulties of favoritism and academic dishonesty can originate as an effect of professor-student relationships, which can be extremely harmful to the learning environment.
Younger kids are definitely impressionable. We can therefore hold teachers in elementary through high schools to a somewhat higher standard of conduct. Any amount of out-of-school activities can impact how a teacher presents her- or himself in the classroom. Would I want my children being educated by someone who uses illegal drugs, engages in prostitution, or makes porn movies even if this activity did not materially impact the classroom environment? It is an arduous issue, and I could make arguments for and against that teacher continuing in their situation.
But in the instance of Olivia Sprauer, is the simple act of being photographed nearly unclothed adequate grounds for dismissal? Or can it be an overreaction driven by society’s inclination to equate nudity with sex?
The battle continues.
