LA High School Featured In ‘Bruno' Leaves District

A high school that was the location for a racy photo shoot by Sacha Baron Cohen's character "Bruno" has broken away from the nation's second-largest school district.

Birmingham High School in Los Angeles had already been planning to become a separate charter school before Wednesday's decision.

The move came one day after officials with the Los Angeles Unified School District disciplined two administrators over violating the district's policy on using the school's name in the film.

The charter proposal ends the district's authority over school employees, so the disciplinary action will be moot.

The photos feature the actor's latest incarnation as gay fashionista "Bruno." He wears shoulder pads and tight red shorts and poses with student football players on the campus field.
