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

    Judges say Calif. middle school teacher can't shake porn past, must not return to classroom - Yahoo! News

    OXNARD, Calif. - A middle-school science teacher fired after students learned she had appeared in pornographic movies had hoped not just to get her job back, but to set a precedent for people looking to escape an embarrassing personal history.

    A three-judge commission put a decisive stop to both, saying firmly and unanimously that Stacie Halas should not be in the classroom.
    Thoughts?

    Would you fire her?

    I'm so torn on this. I fully believe people should be allowed to redeem themselves. There are civilized countries in which former porn stars served or currently serve as members of government. Sex is a natural biological process. Etc., etc., etc. And unless her videos included dangerous, illegal, or disturbing sexual acts, the only difference between her and her former colleagues is her profiting from her sexual activities.

    That said, middle school students are profoundly immature in a broad sense. Her ability to educate them without distraction is severely damaged, and the quality of the education they received would likely decline. While I question the parental involvement of children who accessed pornography at the ages of 12-14, I realize the open nature of today's internet makes it significantly harder to block such exposure.

    So in short, I don't know. If I were her boss and I found it impossible to overcome the situation I think I'd be inclined to do whatever was in my power to help her move on and into employment she could maintain long term. It doesn't seem to me that this woman deserves to be punished, or to suffer, simply because she participated legally in an industry that is heavily monitored and regulated in California.

    Maybe she could teach adults for the GED type certificates?

    When i was little a women who had been a stripper in a nearby town was fired as a teacher in a middle school in mine. it was a big deal and everyone felt justified until they found out the reason she took the job as a stripper. She never got her teaching job back but no one ever bothered her after that either. She finally was given a job as an administrative assistant at a law firm and became a paralegal. She became well respected in her profession within a few years.

    This person seems to want to get her past behind her. I agree that middle school is not the best place. perhaps early elementary school. The problem would be all the self rightrous parents who will eat this up and her too.

    Certainly possible, but she'd need some reschooling if California's educational certifications are anything like those in Texas or Michigan (only states I'm familiar with). I truly hope she's able to find something that satisfies her and makes her proud of what she's become and accomplished.

    I love how the school blocks such content on their computers but the school administrators that put it in place try to find evidence of the claim by using their computers. Our educational system at work folks. Hahahaha.

    Anyway, usually speaking what you have done in your past can cause you problems in future employment. I have no problem with her losing her job because of it.

    Neither do I, frankly. May this be a lesson for all these teenagers who think sexting is ok, or making an amatuer porn movie is no big deal. It IS a big deal and you'll pay for it later in life. Just like tattoos and piercings on your face. Sure you think it's cool now, but try and find a career when you grow up.

    Interesting. Wonder if this ruling will spur adding more protective classes to EEOC...

    Will the teachers who were accessing pornography during the school day on school property be fired, too?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    There are a lot of careers she could choose to redeem herself but middle school teacher isn't one of them. It really comes down to her ability to teach effectively. Every single kid in her class is going to know who she is and what she did from day one... hell, they'll even be able to pull up the videos on their smart phones if they want.

    Sorry, but the bottom line is the kids. A different career choice is in order here.
