Patrice Brown, 33, is an elementary school teacher in Atlanta, USA. She recently told The New York Post that she was bullied and fired by the principal for being “too sexy” for the classroom.

“Teachers are often bullied [por sua aparência] Administration, parents, other teachers and, in higher grades, students. Teachers should not focus on what they wear. The focus should be on the children,” declared Patrice
