Oversized penis sculpture gets Austrian teacher fired
The unnamed teacher was employed at a high school in the small Austrian town of Waidhofen an der Thaya, near the border with the Czech Republic, and had gained a reputation for making inappropriate sexual remarks in front of his 12-year-old students, according to The Local.
Though the children reportedly found making the erect penis to be a bit of fun, word travelled fast in the small town of just over 5,500, and parents quickly complained to the school’s director, Roland Senk, once they found out just what their kids were up to.
Senk confirmed that the teacher was present when the children were constructing the model penis, adding that it could not be dismissed as a “harmless joke.”
The 49-year-old teacher appeared before the Lower Austrian School Board last week and was subsequently suspended and his temporary contract will not be renewed.
