Somebody think of the children

What the hell is wrong with Texas school adminstrators? This past June, in Austin, they went after a respected art teacher, Tamara Hoover, over a Flickr photoset that depicted her artfully, but occasionally bare-chested. How did that work out? In late August, they forked over 15 grand in a settlement and she's going to grad school. Frisco school officials, apparently impervious to learning, recently refused to renew the contract of Sydney McGee, described as a "an award-winning Texas art teacher," for taking a group of students to the Dallas Museum of Art and putting them in the pernicious presence of depicted nudity. Frisco school officials declined to comment on their priggishness.
Via Supergirl, and Tyler has picked it up already.
