Education Follow-up – Jared
December 13, 2008 Leave a comment
Sometimes public education makes me sick. Prime example right here. Sexual misconduct occurs in the classroom with students participating, and the teacher, whoever he or she is, does nothing. All semester. The students have been suspended and may be expelled. Good. They deserve it.
But remember this post about Washington D.C.’s schools and their new superintendent? These teachers, to quote the news story, have been “temporarily reassigned”. What?!?! The teacher should be on unpaid leave pending investigation and then in all likelihood should be fired. This is ridiculous. What kind of system is in place where teachers think they can get away with this so they do nothing to fix it?
