An ex-Playboy model was fired from her teaching job

A few months ago there was a story in the news about a California teacher who was fired from her job because she had done some pornographic movies (sex movies) when she was younger.

Now there is a story about a teacher in Texas who was fired because she posed for some naked photos for Playboy magazine when she was younger.

How do you feel about this?
