    Re: Judges say Calif. middle school teacher can't shake porn past, must not return to

    "Although her pornography career has concluded, the ongoing availability of her pornographic materials on the Internet will continue to impede her from being an effective teacher and respected colleague," Cabos-Owen said in the 46-page decision issued Friday by the Commission on Professional Competence.
    I doubt anyone can argue with the above snippet from the Commission on Professional Competence. I certainly can't.

    No, I would not fire (or refuse to hire) her if that was the only reason for not wanting her to continue to teach. If engaging in past legal activities, no matter what the nature, are cause for "instant dimissal" then what of ANY past illegal activities e.g. speeding tickets, DUI/DWI or shoplifting?

    It appears that the actual reason for her termination may have been falsifying the work history portion of her application, in an attempt to hide this job from her resume/application. If even she concluded that past job would prevent her from being hired then perhaps it is fair to conlude that her lying about anything else could be "justified" to keep her teaching job. This is certainly a valid point for any employment requiring a security clearance, or other position of trust.

    What I can't comprehend is why it's okay for us to think of this woman trying to "redeem" herself.

    She didn't commit a crime.

    She isn't the scum of the earth.

    She fell into a trap many women have fallen into in the history of the species -- she was broke, she was desperate, she rented herself out.

    Every single one of us has done something we're ashamed of, or experienced a humiliation -- something it would deeply embarrass us if it were revealed. We as a species need a program wherein those who feed off the humiliation and shame of others find their humiliations and shames exposed for all to see.

    I don't see how that's not discrimination. She did nothing that was illegal or that could effect her ability to teach.

    I can argue with it, I don't see how it possibly could effect her ability to do her job.

    Maybe you've forgotten your teen-aged roots. Every year a new class; every year a new crop of teen-aged boys titillated beyond all scope of reason...masturbating to her porn pictures...bringing the images to school. Hell, teen-aged boys get titillated by the word titillated.

    If she were teaching adults? Whole different ballgame. And that's probably what she should do with her teaching certificate. But middle-school kids? Nah, I agree with the ruling.

    Sorry, but the bottom line is the kids. A different career choice is in order here.
    If the kids can look up the porn, why does it matter if they're watching their teacher or some random woman? They shouldn't have smart phones in class. After the first few days of giggles, they'd get over it.

    Bringing porn to school is strictly against school rules, and the perpetrators would be expelled/suspended. After one of those incidents, how would it continue to effect learning INSIDE the classroom? Are kids masturbating in the classroom instead of learning? What does it matter what they do at home? Middle schoolers will try to **** a desk if they're around it long enough.

    Here's another question: If the woman hadn't done porn, if she just looked like someone who had, wouldn't the classroom be disrupted just as much and wouldn't we be calling on the parents to control their kids and the admin people to suspend them until they get over the juvenile giggles?

    Using that logic, we should disallow any "attractive" teachers from teaching middle school or high school at all right? I mean, they might "distract' the class. Sorry, but this ruling is lame and I hope they get their asses sued.
