Tamara Hoover, an art teacher in Austin, was fired when someone discovered topless photos of her on her friend's art website. Hoover is a well liked teacher who did everything she could to encourage her students. But someone displayed the pictures in a classroom, and now Tamara is out of work. It should be pointed out that no one is saying the photos are pornographic. They are art photos.

If you think the school district overreacted, stop right there. As long as we live in a society where you can lose your job for smoking at home--that's right, at home--ANYTHING you do away from work can be grounds from termination.
