A 25-year-old Portuguese teacher might lose her job after posing naked for the Playboy magazine where she featured in eight pages of the May issue. Bruna Real taught music to elementary students in the city of Mirandela in Northeastern Portugal.
The curiosity of students, teachers and the local population was inevitable and the magazine sold out the first day it was issued. Although her neighbours describe her as a "woman who just likes to show off", the school that employs her refuses to accept the young teacher's extracurricular activities and has already announced the intention of dismissing her by the end of this school year.
The teacher's atittude was considered incorrect, thus, according to the school principal JosÃƒÂ© Pires Garcia, "action must be taken quickly. Featuring naked in a magazine is not compatible with the function of an educator," he said, reminding that "keeping her in the institution would be harmful for the school community."
Since the young woman is currently teaching extracurricular activities, her contract is in charge of the city; therefore it's up to the city hall of Mirandela to decide about her permanence in the school, having it already convened a meeting to discuss the concerns of various families.[/b]
As of now, this is the new hype around here in my country. Like always, all sorts of opinions have been flying around, so I'm just wondering: what do you think? Is posing naked for a magazine "not compatible with the function of an educator," especially an elementary school educator? Or does that not give the right to anybody to take away another person's job, as much immoral as it might be?
