A WTF Suspension 

I am filing this under the “WTF???” heading.

Art Teacher Loses Job After Kids See Nude Sculpture

Children Were On School-Approved Field Trip

POSTED: 10:32 am EDT September 26, 2006
FRISCO, Texas -- An award-winning Texas art teacher who was reprimanded after one of her fifth-grade students saw a nude sculpture during a trip to a museum has lost her job.
The school board in Frisco has voted not to renew Sydney McGee's contract after 28 years. She has been on administrative leave.
The teacher took her students on an approved field trip to a Dallas museum, and now some parents are upset.
The Fisher Elementary School art teacher came under fire last April when she took 89 fifth-graders on a field trip to the Dallas Museum of Art. Parents raised concerns over the field trip after their children reported seeing a nude sculpture at the art museum.
The parents had signed permission slips allowing their children to take part in the field trip.
McGee's lawyer said the principal at Fisher Elementary School admonished her after a parent complained that a student had seen nude art.
McGee said the principal had urged her to take the students to the museum.
Now, McGee, who was honored with a Star Teacher Award two years ago, is on paid administrative leave until her contract with the school district expires in March.
Other parents are worried about the future of the art program at the school, which they cite as a reason for moving into the neighborhood.
"Our main concern right now is what's going to happen to the children and what's going to happen to the art program at Fisher Elementary. It is the best art program. That's the reason we moved to this neighborhood. It's because of the teachers," said Shannon Allen, a parent. "It was a principal-approved trip. What's the big deal?"
Officials with the Frisco school district declined to comment on the matter.

I don’t understand people like this. What is the problem? So some 5th graders saw a nude statue. I really doubt they will be scarred for life. I also doubt it will turn them into sexual deviants.
What these parents don’t seem to understand is that if they want to blame someone, they need to blame THEMSELVES. The children all had signed permission slips. It was up to the parents to know where they were sending their child.
What really aggravates me is that an award winning teacher was suspended just because some uptight stick-up-the-ass parents complained. And this after the principal encouraged the field trip. Ridiculous. Complete and utter bullshit. I am not one to encourage litigation, but if I were this teacher I would sue their asses off!
