[PHOTOS/VIDEO] South Carolina teacher Leigh Anne Arthur, 33, was forced to resign from her job after a pupil, 16, shared nude photos from her phone while she was out of the room.
A 16-year-old male high schooler swiped the Mechatronics Instructor's unlocked phone from her desk while Arthur was patrolling the halls of the Union County Career and Technology Center, according to WYFF.
The student then shared them on social media and texted them to friends. He then allegedly told her, "your day of reckoning is coming." The school district asked for her resignation the following Tuesday, even though no official policy about "inappropriate material" on teachers' cell phones exists.
So... the teacher is at fault here and her career given the death sentence? Sure, she should not have kept her phone unlocked. But to make her feel at fault and asked to resign is ridiculous. Fortunately thousands of people have signed a petition asking for Arthur to be reinstated.
The school district says the student is still being investigated and may also be punished. This should be a forgone conclusion.
