Do You Want to Know Why Unions Suck? Here it Is
This is from Fox News:
John E. Morrison, a 62-year-old a music teacher at Romeo Elementary School in Florida, is charged with lewd and lascivious molestation and one count of battery for allegedly inappropriately touching two female students, ages 7 and 8, in May.
Police said Morrison admitted to putting his hand in the 7-year-old’s pants to touch her leg and to putting his hand in the 8-year-oldâ€™s shirt to touch her chest, according to various media reports. They said he also admitted to touching the 8-year-old’s buttocks.
Morrison continues to get paid as he awaits his trial, which is scheduled to begin next month.
Tammy Clinton, a 39-year-old teacher at Farnell Middle School, has been charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation and two counts of lewd and lascivious conduct after allegedly forcing a 14-year-old student to touch her breasts, fondling his buttocks, and enticing him to leave the campus twice so they could commit sexual acts.
Police said Clinton admitted to the accusations after her arrest, the Orlando Sun-Sentinel reported. She is banned from school grounds but will continue to receive her paycheck pending a complete investigation.
The L.A. school system has 160 teachers getting paid to not work
The housed are accused, among other things, of sexual contact with students, harassment, theft or drug possession. Nearly all are being paid. All told, they collect about $10 million in salaries per year â€” even as the district is contemplating widespread layoffs of teachers because of a financial shortfall.
Most cases take months to adjudicate, but some take years.
The Times says that it is extremely difficult for the district to fire teachers because they are union-protected.
New York City has “Rubber Rooms” that house hundreds of teachers at a cost of $35 million dollars a year. m
Is this a good use of taxpayer money? Paying admitting child molesters to sit and do nothing because the union is too strong. This is pathetic. If I did anything like this I’d be fired yesterday. No questions asked. Teachers unions (and almost all others) need to go away forever. There is no reason for our hard earned money to go to these sex offenders in the form of taxes just because they happen to belong to a union.
