The same day the nation’s fifth largest school district began the year with some 400 teaching vacancies, the nonprofit corporation that supports it, the Public Education Foundation, accepted a $2,500 donation from a strip club, Scores Las Vegas.

Scores raised the funds at an Aug. 23 back-to-school event called “Detention” that featured strippers dressed as teachers, schoolgirls and librarians.

“It’s back to school time and you know what that means. Detention for everyone who has been bad!” one advertisement read.

It’s been a while since I taught in Las Vegas but I’m pretty sure I’d remember a stripper fund raiser if we ever had one.

Sure beats selling candy!

Hey, Laura. I wonder what the president of our local education foundation would say to an event like that around here. :-)
