Public schools in America aren’t exactly rolling in dosh, given the economic meltdown and lawmakers’ ever-tightening purse strings when it comes to anything soft and girlie like education, the arts, social welfare. So, it was a shock to hear that gigantonormous teachers’ union the National Education Association, has turned down a generous donation.
Well, it’s not so hard to understand given the would-be benefactor’s name — Sasha Grey.
The infamous 23-year-old former hardcore porn star turned photographer artist and thesp offered to give the NEA a portion of the profits from sales of Anal Artists, which features her last hardcore scene. Given Grey’s notoriety, the film is expected to make a pile.
Grey, who made headlines in November when she participated in a Read Across America program as a celeb guest reader at Emerson Elementary School in Compton, Calif., wanted to give the NEA the cash to further expose children to literature.
