Former Pornstar Loses Appeal to Return to the Classroom

An Oxnard, California, middle school teacher has lost her appeal to return to the classroom, after students discovered pornographic vidoes in which she starred. Stacie Halas, 32, had starred in a variety of pornographic films prior to becoming a teacher. Halas was fired in April after those films came to light.

In a 46 page ruling issued by the Commission on Professional Competence, the three-judge panel determined that although her pornographic career was behind her, Halas’ effectiveness as a teacher had been compromised, and she was not entitled to return to the classroom.
