    And Ethanwinfield already stated this quite neatly for you, Bonita. So did Gloria, actually. I don't know why you needed me to do it a third time. Debates don't have to be all about opinions when we are furnished with facts in the articles presented.

    So stop picking at me and read more closely. She was fired for being a disruption. Not for lying.
    I disagree that it was clearly stated why she was fired, as "Halas was continually deceitful about her nine-month career in porn before she went to work at the school, the decision said." is also stated in the article. If it wasnt a factor in the decision then why would it be part of the record?

    I wouldn't be bothered with a former porn star teaching my kids unless of course it caused classroom disruption.

    We all make decisions and this isn't illegal. I'm not going to hold someone's past against them. I've made very stupid decisions when I was in my 20s. I sure as heck wouldn't want that to prohibit me from working.

    It doesn't say anything about her deceit being insurmountable. Pretty straightforward to me. Then again, I really don't care to nitpick it, if bonita wants to carry on about an issue that to me doesn't matter to the debate, have at it. To me the intent behind her dismissal is stated several times, the appeal being denied is based upon her career in porn being an insurmountable disruption/distraction.

    To me it boils down to if her boss has the right to fire her or not. I am not sure if porn is a valid reason to fire a teacher in this State or not, but I believe lying to your boss is. As I earlier asked, if you can not fire someone for lying, what can you get fired for?

    Okay, just thought of something. If it wasn't in her application and she was never asked about it and possibly had no morality clause itemizing that she could not have been in porn in the past...what gives her employer the right to ask?

    I could completely be misreading things, but I was under the impression that they only asked after students found it out and were making a fuss about it.

    Well, my coworker could find out that I had a heroin habit as a teen (I didn't) and tell my boss. I am under no obligation to answer that question and they can't ask me. I'm not doing heroin now.

    Honestly asking, why not? Is it a law? I admit to not being familiar with all of the laws here, let alone CA.

    Okay. I take back all of my opinions. This lady deserved to go. The full draft of the hearing is here: READ DISCLAIMER BELOW BEFORE YOU CLICK ON LINK Stacie Halas decision

    Its NASTY (the names of the pornos alone are foul, and there is some talk about what she does in the videos which is wayyyyy beyond vanilla stuff) so I will very much warn you to click at your own risk> Again, the link is foul. Foul.

    She deserved to be fired. She was subbing while doing porn, and she was very deceitful. This was the THIRD district where she has been outed. It appears that her porn career was too long, too recent, and she looks exactly the same as she did in those videos. She will have to change her name, her look and probably her state to even have a chance at teaching, IMO
