    The student should not have been stalking this woman online, the school was justified in disciplining him. It seems like the young woman will lose her day job over this episode, so he has done her real harm.

    The fact that this 14 year old student was apparently watching porn is not a big surprise.

    Suppose the school employee/porn star had been a man, not a woman, how would or should this have been handled differently?

    This is a complicated issue morally. However, unless it violates her work contract or a law of some kind she should NOT be fired or forced to quit.

    I think its a shame in this day and age that these things still cause people to loose their jobs. Its not like it actually affected her day job.

    I agree with srider that the pupil was definitely in the wrong, even if they did want to do something about it - creating a facebook page is hardly the way forwards.

    In Canada, it is not illegal to work 2 jobs and you cannot discriminate in anyway in the hiring or firing process. Whether this happens or not and whether people actually fight against it when it happens is another story.

    Not hiring or firing someone because they starred in an adult film would be treated the same way as not-hiring or firing a visual minority...

    At the end of the day, the secretary did everything she could in the right ways. Worked two jobs with non-conflicting schedules and kept a professional attitude at the school by not telling anyone (which she doesn't have to disclose anyways because it's a non-conflicting interest and doesn't apply to her current job).

    I don't see how her past jobs should influence her current work provided she is a competent employee.

    She shouldn't lose her job because a douche bag kid decided to troll her. It's her life and she should be able to do what she wants in her spare time.

    well on the plus side if she's going to stay in the adult industry I'm sure she will be able to make a packet with all the publicity.

    In my opinion, she should have just gone to work at an elementary school instead, where the students are far less likely to discover her second job. If she's a good secretary, that's great. She shouldn't be fired for it (unless the school has some sort of rule about that.)

    But she definitely, definitely, should have gone to work at an elementary school instead of a high school.

    I do not think that she deserves to be fired. It was something she had apparently done ages ago when she was younger, and it was legal regardless. What is the big deal?

    Exactly. It's her business, and as long as she isn't breaking the law she should not be fired or harassed in any way. Honestly I'm disappointed they even put her name and information all over the internet because of this. She did nothing wrong, and they should have protected her right to privacy in my opinion.

    Once again this is a case of the PARENTS not taking responsibility for their kids. Why was this underage kid looking at porn in the first place. That's the real issue here. If my hypothetical kid discovered the school secretary was in porn, my first question would be "How do you know?". These silly news stories always boil down to the kids parents not being responsible.

    Punish the kid and his parents.

    And it's because of this attitude right here that the world is falling apart. Apathy, ladies and gentlemen, the killer of society.

    What can you do? Teach your child the difference between right and wrong. DISCIPLINE your child (and I'm not talking about abuse here, there's a difference). On and on and on. Today's children are allowed to pretty much get away with murder, because parents just don't care. They're not taught any sort of respect, because their parents have none. They're not taught any sort of values, because their parents don't care to do so.

    Of course, this has everything to do with being forced to be PC.

    Should this student have been suspended? Absolutely. Harassment is wrong, period. His parents should have taught him that lesson, but once again, they failed their child.

    Should this employee have been suspended? Absolutely not. Name one thing she did wrong while working for the school? Nobody can. Were I her, I would be contacting an attorney and suing the school for loss of income at the very minimum.

    Your reply was immature at best. And your ultimatum would have ended you up in a lot deeper trouble.

    The school needs to be punished for suspending her pay.

    What you suggested was not 'funny' by any means. It was threatening, juvenile and stupid, not to mention illegal. Funny? Not at all.

    Well said, linux-tech. A lot of students' issues at school have strong links to failings at home. :/

    Better than half the world's problems could have been solved if Johnny or Jane were brought up properly. I'm not talking about 'values' (ie: church, etc), but common sense, such as respecting others, if it's not yours don't touch it, etc.

    Parents seem to have just ignored teaching children these very things the past couple of generations, unfortunately.

    Yep. Complete lack of personal responsibility. The kids won't take any responsibility because they weren't taught to, by parents that won't take any responsibility either. Everyone expects someone else (schools, government, teachers) to take care of their kids financially and emotionally.

    I'd say much higher than half of the world's social problems would be solved if parents made some type of attempt to raise their own kids. This is why my generation is screwed.

    Naah, your generation is screwed (if you're in the U.S.) because you're going to be owned fully and completely by China, thanks to the government and big business .

    Yeah, thanks to the fact that most people in my generation want their lives to be controlled by the government. Capitalism and business is what made us what we are. Government will destroy it.

    Edit - Btw, I've been predicting our takeover by China for years. They work, we whine.
