The DOE has a process in place for dealing with accusations. Basically, it works kinda like the judicial system. You have to be proven guilty. He wasn't.



Then they should put him back to work...

Exactly.

Every job contract I've ever seen has 'and other duties as assigned' in it.

If they don't want to put him in a classroom, stick him in the cafeteria washing trays. Assign him as a janitors assistant. Let him assist the other teachers by grading homework and test papers.

If someone offered me a hundred grand a year to sit on my ass, I'd be an idiot not to take it.

And if that "someone" was in a position that was taxpayer funded and the money offered was taxpayer funded, that "someone" should be doing time...

The motto of all public unions--


All taxpayers are suckers!

Why? He didn't say 'pay me for doing nothing'. The officials said 'sit here, do nothing and get paid'.

True. Taxpayers should be able to have the authorities who screwed up and created this situation fired!

The ability to not hold the unions accountable for the system they have is incredible. Even if you replace every single public servant, the contract still stands! They still get paid. On the other hand, if we try and change the contract, we'll get called union busters!

I would love to fire the union! Unfortunately, that's not possible.

Yeah, lets get rid of the unions. We'll allow the school system to fire teachers on the basis of an unproven accusation.

That will attract good teachers!
