A South Florida high school art teacher is facing a three-day suspension for showing a video with nude models in poses some students called suggestive, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
Brenda Fischer teaches at Western High School in Davie. According to a Broward County School Board administrative complaint, Fischer, “by her own admission, had previewed the video before she played it” for students in two creative photography classes Aug. 23. The Broward County School Board will consider Tuesday whether to take action.
The complaint does not name the video, but students said it featured a collection of images by a photographer.
Fischer, who has taught in Broward County since 1992, is accused of misconduct in office, incompetence and willful neglect of duty, according to the complaint.
Fischer said she plans to fight the suspension before an administrative law judge, the Sun-Sentinel reported. She couldn’t be reached for comment, despite attempts Thursday and Friday.
Fischer is being defended by the Broward Teachers Union, the newspaper reported.
