The country’s top education official has said she’s investigating after a cell phone video showing teachers dancing with strippers was leaked to Paraguayan media, where headlines have described the event as an “erotic party.”
The teachers had permission to miss class and participate in team-building activities at a retreat outside the country’s capital of Asuncion. But according to an investigation by the Ministry of Education and Culture, they didn’t just discuss lesson plans or teaching at the April retreat.
A cell phone video provided to CNN affiliate Telefuturo shows shirtless male strippers dancing with female teachers at the event as onlookers cheer and music blares.
Some 800 teachers attended the event, officials say
