Book description

Sexing the Teacher is a provocative study of public and professional responses to female teacher sex scandals in Canada, the United States, and Britain. Sheila Cavanagh examines the moral and professional panic over sexual transgressions in the educational milieu by analyzing several sensationalized legal cases, including those of Mary Kay Letourneau, Amy Gehring, and Heather Ingram.

Deploying queer theory, psychoanalysis, postcolonial theory, and feminist film theory, Cavanagh analyzes deep-seated anxieties about white female teacher sexualities and offers a critique of the damage that gets done in the name of child protectionism. Arguing that foundational assumptions about race, gender, class, sexuality, and family are all central to the panic, Cavanagh questions the conventional wisdom and politics governing our conceptualization of sex scandals in education. She also demonstrates that public upset over female teacher sexual transgressions, ostensibly about child welfare, is also about the regulation of gender and heteronormative and white reproductive futures: a hidden curriculum in Western educational systems.
