Teacher suspended over stripper photo

A Brownsville high school teacher has been suspended for 30 days without pay after she appeared in a picture someone else posted on Facebook that included a male stripper at a bridal shower.
Brownsville Area School District officials aren't identifying the teacher who was suspended last month.
The school district's attorney, Jeremy Davis, says public comment on the issue won't be allowed when the school board meets Thursday. That hasn't stopped board members from commenting to Pittsburgh-area television reporters anyway.
Board member Stella Broadwater says the suspension is appropriate because the photo became public, but member Sandra Chan says it was too harsh because the teacher had no control over the photo being posted.
