Manhattan appellate judges ruled on Thursday that two public high school teachers who were fired for doing it in a classroom back in 2009 can have their jobs back. The judges said Cindy Mauro and Alini Brito weren't on the clock at the time and other teachers have gotten lesser punishments for infractions involving students!
The story made headlines back in 2009 because it was the first instance in which two female high school teachers were caught having sex, and they were both hot, instantly validating every straight male high school student's deepest fantasy. It all went down when the Spanish and French teachers were attending an after school musical at James Madison High School in Brooklyn. But but the talent show was dragging on, so they snuck off to the French classroom for a little privacy.
But right when they were in the middle of getting it on, a pair of janitors stumbled in on them. High School Superintendent Linda Waite fired Mauro and Brito for "conduct unbecoming". After a lot of legal wrangling back and forth, a lower court ruled the women deserved a second administrative hearing. Now, almost 5 years after the night in question, judges ruled they can have their jobs back.
Today the two teachers are celebrating, but the Department of Education has vowed to strike back. We say, Just give it a rest guys, and get back to teaching those kids how to read. Mmm'kay?
