You're Firing Me For What?

Let's talk about Stacie Halas, former science teacher at Haydock Intermediate School in Oxnard, California. Ms. Halas ran into a spot of bother last year when her young charges accused her of moonlighting in pornographic films. No so answered Ms. Halas. She admits to being a porn actress, for a brief period, but only due to dire financial hardship brought about by her boyfriend leaving her high and dry. What's a girl to do asked Ms. Halas? Not porn says the California Commission on Professional Competence which concluded "Although her pornographic 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." I guess we can conclude somebody in California is still sane.
    So what's your point, you know, other than you like to talk about porn actresses? My point dear reader is education is useless without ethics and morality. How many times have we been told that education is the key? If we could only educate young people then everything will be ok. Let's spend more and more on education because if you think education is expensive, try ignorance. Ok maybe so, but education comes in many forms and guises, and one very important form is education by example. Now don't think Ms. Halas is an extreme case of the moral turpitude of many of our educators, there are loads of others much more dangerous and much more insidious than the frisky young science instructor. Just Google "criminal teachers" and click images (make sure your filter is on!!). You'll be treated to mugshot after mugshot, licentious Facebook photos and newspaper perp-walk images galore. 
    You want to know why the country is going to hades just take a close look at the education establishment with their unions and "rubber rooms"! Too often they're not about education, they're not about teaching and passing along our common values. They're about political indoctrination, baby-sitting and benefit packages. Plus they're a jealous master, just ask Ben Chavis out in Oakland who started a very successful charter school that was so bad it was shut down at first opportunity. But even if a kid does learn the three Rs, they graduate as moral bankrupts schooled in the arts of complaining, subversion and mob rule. We MUST break the back of the "education industrial complex" that is robbing us of our money, robbing our kids of a good education and robbing our country's future.

 "Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil."
C. S. Lewis

Student Perspective: As a young high school boy, she could teach me a lot!!!

Parent Perspective: She doesn't belong in education given her past choices.

I'd rather have a good teacher who formerly did porn, than the dead-wood we see so much of.

Deadwood has nothing to do with it CW, you're just pissed she wasn't YOUR teacher.
