Idaho Couple Facebook Photo Scandal
Laraine Cook, a former girls’ basketball coach at Pocatello High School in Idaho, was fired from her job in October over a Facebook photo in which her fiance, Tom Harrison, holds her breast.
He’s the football coach at the same high school… he wasn’t fired, only reprimanded.
The photo was taken on a family vacation in July. It was posted on Laraine’s Facebook page for just one day. The school says she was fired because she posted the photo.
The school is standing by its decision. Laraine is planning on fighting for her job.
She says she loves coaching and teaching and that the photo was not immoral – which was the reason the school fired her.
Some are saying that either they both should have been fired, or neither of them. Some are saying that he was kept on staff because he is the football coach… and she’s “just” the girls basketball coach. What do you think?
