When going to school, children should pay attention to the board and what the teacher says, but that is not what is happening in the kindergarten in the city of Pennsauken Township, in the United States. At least that’s what the parents guarantee, claiming that the faculty would be ‘distracting’ the students.
Therefore, the parents started an offensive, asking for the teacher’s dismissal because she has a ‘flashy’ body.
On Instagram, the teacher who identifies herself only as “Toyboxdollz” frequently posts about raising children, but also about the importance of having a positive and receptive body image. Already on YouTube, she, who is the mother of a girl, says that girls need to feel comfortable with their appearance.
Despite this, the parents reportedly sent a letter to the authorities asking them to remove her from her work, claiming that her image “distracted” the children.
However, the labor laws of the state of New Jersey, where she works, state that it is illegal to fire her because of her physical appearance. As a result, the school hadn’t even considered fulfilling requests from some of her parents, according to Infobae.
Another point that caused controversy was her exposure on social media. Some of the parents would have seen her online behavior as incompatible with her job as a teacher.
With the repercussion of the case, her popularity on the networks has been growing recently, adding 200,000 new followers in the last two months alone.
