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 José 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?

I would, but:
1. The original text is in Portuguese
2. It contains inappropriate images

Well, I would call it more justified than firing a teacher for having premarital sex, considering this scandal would be out in the open and not in private...

But still somewhat ridiculous. Her ability to be hot and naked and captured on film is not going to hamper her ability to teach.

I don't know what definition of science you're using in fundamenta-la-la-land, but by rational accounts, Creationism is not scientific.

I normally have no problem with someone who goes into this profession but being a teacher, she knows that she has to be a good role model to children. Being a teacher is not only just teaching the kids stuff, but more than that.
If the school has standards, let them fire her.

Bloody JAFA girls, they are a plague on us all.:P

This kind of crosses the line between the professional relationship of teacher and student. I fail to see how elementary schoolchildren being able to see their teacher naked (in various poses!) is not going to hamper her ability to teach.

Considering it's illegal for elementary schoolchildren to look at pornography in the first place, I don't see the relevance.

Just because it's illegal does not mean it won't happen; this is the age of the internet, after all.

Let's not be so naive. We've all seen naked models when we were children. Well at least all of my then peers and I have. If it was that easy back when I was little, then it must be even easier nowadays, just like Aquinas pointed out. Theoretically, being a pornographic model is not incompatible with the function of teaching, yes, and no one has the right to stop someone from teaching because he/she posed naked, but this is a very specific situation that will require very specific decisions and a lot of pondering. Afterall we're talking about kids under the age of 10 who saw their own teacher naked; those who haven't seen at least know it. That affects many things in terms of teaching. I can't even imagine the awkwardness if she sets foot in the classroom one more time...

I can't imagine that the school teacher would be able to maintain her authority after that. Making fun of teachers is definitely a schoolkid's favourite thing to do, and this would provide a preposterous amount of ammunition.

Last time i checked, Playboy style nude photography did not qualify as pornographic.

I think that this should be less of a problem for an elementary school teacher than a highschool one though. Among children of elementary school age that may earn her a few giggles and that's probably all. It may be a premature decision to fire her over this; IMHO it should be observed how the situaton develops - there should be a removal from the job only if it does actually turn out to be a serious problem that doesn't fade away after a few weeks.

Playboy doesn't post their main photoshoots on the internet, as far as I'm aware. Not that I regularly check or anything. :rolleyes:

The first time I ever saw a nude model was when I was 10, and only because a friend made me look at it on the internet. But I can't see this woman's pictures being posted on the internet. Now if a kid managed to get ahold of a magazine with it, then that would just be some bad parenting.

I'm sure your children will at some point be taught by someone who does much worse!

I assume the "inappropriate images" are relevant to the story.

If a child is smart enough to use the internet to find porn, then he probably won't limit himself to just nude pics of his teacher, in that case, you have other things to worry about.

MrSugar summed it all up. And the pictures are pretty much everywhere on the Internet, no joke. It only takes a few seconds for any kid to look up their own teacher on Google (it's kinda creepy when you come to think of it). So basically the situation's got out of control since day 1. Plus, the media here didn't help with all the hype, which included actually exposing some of the photos -- and yes, TV as well.

Btw: just got to know that they've actually created a group of supporters of said teacher on Facebook, and they seem to be pretty defensive of her... Good grief. O_o
