A cheerleading coach was fired for posing for playboy.com recently. ok, I understand the lady is suppose to be a role model, BUT my issue with the whole situation is the family that reported her for posing on playboy.com, their daughter had been kicked off the team for 3 unexcused abscances from 3 classes. I feel the ONLY reason this family turned the coach in for a PICTURE SHE POSED FOR IN FEBRUARY! was they were pissed off a bout their daughter getting the boot. ALSO in order for them to have found the picture either they deliberately looked for "dirt" on this coach or they have a subscription to playboy.com.. you know? was what the school did wrong? did they cross a line? do you believe they even considered that this family was just PO'd about their DD being given the boot? they claim the reason they turned her in was because the girls are held to such high standard that the coach should be as well.Answer Question

She didn't have tenure, so they could fire her for any reason they wanted. The fact that she posed in Playboy just gives the school the wrong kind of attention. Would you be comfortable with your DS or DD being taught by this woman? Let me be clear, I think she should be able to do whatever she wants to do (pose naked or whatnot), but she needs to accept the consequences of her adult decisions. I wonder, did she think it was going to be a warm reception? She likely knew this would garner negative attention from the school administration.

As for the DD being a baby because she got bumped from the squad, she will learn soon enough that mommy and daddy can't fix all of her f-ups.

BEXi, don't get me wrong, I don't think it's right. But at the same time, teachers have been let go for far less because they don't have tenure. And now that the spotlight is on the school, I am sure there are a ton of parents wondering what they were thinking hiring her knowing about the photos. The school is trying to play catch up to get the heat off of their azzes.
As for my kids being taught by her, I wouldn't be bothered if it were my DD, but my DS is VERY girl crazy and he is still very young. I have nightmares of what he will be like as a teenager. I wouldn't want him anywhere near her if he were 16-18 years old. (or now, really).
And nabyma23, nobody called her a slut.
*note that when I first posted I didn't know the school knew about the photos, that was their bad*
