Paraguay teachers caught with strippers on school trip
I don't know why, but when I first came across this story of Paraguayan teachers caught on video dancing with strippers during an offical retreat, I just started cracking up. Maybe I just find it so ridiculously absurd that there would be strippers at what was supposed to be a teachers' team-building retreat. Apparently, classes were suspended so that these teachers could be a part of this retreat, which is totally fine, but who approved and booked the strippers and did the teachers know ahead of time because it would be a shame if the strippers didn't make any tips because the teachers had no cash on them?

There were about 800 teachers at this retreat that took place in April and video footage of female teachers dancing with shirtless strippers was taken with a cell phone and leaked to the media.
The Education of Ministry is investigating the incident and some school officials say that the strippers were not a part of the event's official program and happened without the permission of the organizers. Well, I should hope it wasn't part of the official program because that would make no sense at all.
I have no problem with teachers blowing off steam or even indulging in some adult entertainment, but not when they are at a teacher training retreat. I have no idea who will be held responsible for this nonsense. Maybe the strippers should be blamed because obviously no one else knew any better. Ha!
