Teacher Posted 7-year old student with Jolly Ranchers in her hair on her Facebook page…is this a crime?

“Ukailya Lofton, a student at Overton Elementary School in Chicago, turned up for her school photo on picture day with Jolly Rancher candies tied to her braids after she had seen the style in a magazine. Her computer teacher asked her to pose for a photo with her braids hanging because her husband would not believe it.” The teacher posted the pictures of the 7-year old child on her Facebook page and several of her friends wrote mocking commentaries regarding the child’s hair. Someone who knew the girl’s mother copied the images and the comments on a CD and gave it to the girl’s mother. The mother is considering suing the school system. The teacher had no right to post the child’s image on Facebook, and if she did it for the purpose of mocking the child that’s just plain cruel, but should the school system be held responsible for the activities of the teacher when she is not on duty? Tell me what you think.
