Md. Teacher Accused of Choking First Graders
Teacher placed on administrative leave but not fired.
How can this woman not be fired. I don’t care if she hasn’t been proven guilty for an actual crime (which is a different legal standard) but this is clearly misconduct. If I did this to a co-worker or client, whether convicted or not, I would expect that my belongings would be shipped to me instead of giving me time to pack my stuff.
Despicable conduct like this, while admittedly isolated, is protected by a teacher’s union. I would suggest that if the union wants to save its image, they should immediately disavow this woman. If there was enough to place her on administrative leave (with full pay no doubt), there was enough to fire her.
