Scandal Over Olivia Sprauer Bikini Photos:
It appears like just about every week we hear at least one story in the news of a teacher (generally young and female) being fired or detained for participating in inappropriate conduct (usually sexual) with a pupil.
Mathematically speaking, it should be no surprise a teacher caught in a compromising situation with a student is female. In accordance with the National Center for Education Statistics, about three quarters of public school teachers are female. Teaching has, like nursing and a few other 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 behavior.
Ms. Sprauer’s case, however, is different. She wasn’t fired for inappropriate interaction with a pupil. Nor was she fired for appearing in a pornographic film. Rather, she was fired for having professional photos taken of herself wearing a bikini.

Ms. Sprauer obviously knew she was taking a risk by being photographed in skimpy swimwear. Employment contracts for many classes of public employees comprise actions clauses which dictate that behaviour outside of work hours can be considered when rating general job performance. Teachers are (possibly unfairly) more changed by these actions clauses, since their main audience is kids and it’s also presumed that children will be more negatively affected by alleged immoral behaviour on the part of the teachers than fellow adults would.
Apart from parents, the adults that children spend most of their time with are teachers. As a parent of two young kids in public school, I realize (and anticipate) that teachers have a role model part with their jobs. But I can also categorically state that if among my children’s teachers (who are both female) did some bikini modeling on the side, I’dn’t be disturbed at all.
As nudists, 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 much less bo there d by bikini photos in New York as they are in Florida (oh, the irony!).
Though I believe we can all concur the first thing we want 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 conduct? Or was it only a difficulty that she modeled and got paid because of it? As long as she was efficiently facilitating learning in the classroom, what does it matter?
Conduct policies are integral to many jobs, and can be especially important within an educational environment. My wife continues to be a professor at a couple of different universities, and most higher education associations ban relationships between professors/staff and students though the pupils are normally over the age of 18 and hence legally adults.
Difficulties of favoritism and academic dishonesty can arise as a result of professor-student relationships, which can be incredibly detrimental to the learning environment.
Younger children are surely impressionable. We can thus hold teachers in elementary through high schools to a somewhat higher standard of http://wnude.com/demo2.php . Any number of out of school activities can change how a teacher presents her- or himself in the classroom. Would I want my children being taught by someone who uses illegal drugs, engages in prostitution, or makes porn movies even if this activity didn’t materially change the classroom environment? It is a hard issue, and I could make arguments for and against that teacher continuing within their situation.
In the case of Olivia Sprauer, is the simple act of being photographed almost nude acceptable grounds for dismissal? Or can it be an overreaction driven by society’s inclination to equate nudity with sex?
The battle continues.
