Utah School Reverses Position Allowing Teacher To Keep Instagram Account With Fitness Pictures After Parent Complaints.

The New York Daily News (10/23, Ng) reports North Sanpete Middle School in Utah reversed its position on a teacher’s Instagram account after some parents complained the teacher’s pictures were “inappropriate” and “pornographic.” Mindi Jensen posted “pictures of herself body-building and wearing bikinis in competitions” to her account in order to inspire women to be physically fit. After parents complained about the account, the school threatened to fire Jensen unless she deleted the pictures or made her account private. Jensen at first complied, but then challenged the school saying her pictures were motivational and inspiring to other women and there was nothing inappropriate about them. Jensen said, “If you are not comfortable with seeing me in my fitness uniform on stage posting then take that way from your kid. Don’t take it away from me.”
