NYC Teachers Banned From Classrooms For Sexual-Misconduct Charges Continue To Rake In Hundreds Of Thousands In Salary
Did you know that teachers who have touched students in inappropriate ways in inappropriate places are hard to fire and easier to just take out of the classroom and pay a salary to because of Unions? Three of the NYC longest-running “rubber room” teachers have raked in more than $1 million each for a decade of not working in classrooms, and a fourth is paid a top salary – $100,049 a year – not to teach.
Via NY Post:
The Foul Four – who beat sexual-misconduct charges – can’t be fired by the Department of Education because they are entitled to job protections under state tenure laws, which require “due process.” Educators are entitled to a trial with an independent hearing officer who decides whether any misconduct warrants termination.
A group of New York City parents filed a lawsuit this month seeking to loosen the restrictions after a California judge ruled teacher tenure in that state unconstitutional.
The four banned teachers collect a total of $363,271 a year, plus pension and health benefits.
It almost encourages teachers to behave badly with their students so they can get on the FREE salary dole too. Do you think teachers who have violated children deserve this kind of job protection and get paid for it?
