    Teacher continues to accrue retirement benefits

    A conviction isn't reason enough to terminate?

    John Stossel's book "Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity" (2006) has a four-page flow chart of the hoops a school in New York has to jump through in order to fire a teacher...and "any crime involving physical or sexual abuse of a minor or student" is on the top of the third page, followed by another two pages of hoops and procedures to go through. In that case, a lot of it is due to the contracts and agreements between the teachers unions and the various levels of the education bureaucracy. If Alabama has similar contracts, the it's logical that they'd have a similarly difficult time firing a teacher, even after a conviction.

    Teachers have year long contracts that each side must hold up. She was removed from her position but still while state looks at the firing to see that it was justified, and it was in this case, she still collects her salary. I doubt it will go 2.5 years.

    The same would be offered to any other teacher where they had to be removed from their position while an investigaton went on: kid hurt in PE, or shop class, teacher hurts a kid while breaking up a fight, etc... Granted, this is an extreme case.

    Court hearings and legalties take time.

    if it gets into lawsuits and appeals it certainly could stretch that long, hopefully it won't though

    On the other side of the coin, my old alma mater fired a coach after he was arrested by Florida cops for allegations of sexual abuse of his child by his ex-wife.
    she had spoken publicly several times she would not stop until his career was ruined during their bitter divorce.

    He was acquitted in Florida. she had no case.
    her solution was to cross the state line, and press charges in Alabama.
    He's still without a job facing the same charges.

    but to my alma mater's credit, they told him at board meetings he would have a position open for him after he wins this trial.

    there are times when i can understand why we have hoops and hurdles. but dang, when a person is in jail unable to attend work because of a conviction based upon unsinkable evidence, what's the holdup?

    Kinda like paying Jack Ruby workman's comp while in jail after the world watched him shoot Oswald..."um, we're not sure he's IN-eligible yer..."
    hurm.

    Well if she isnt fired she should still get paid and she should still get her time counted if she isnt fired.

    Q: If she hasn't been working, hasn't even spent time in a classroom, then what pay does she deserve?
    she can always sue for lost wages, IMO, after all this is done, right?

    I ask because at my old job, if i got arrested for anything and missed work, i got canned and no pay for it, either.

    She has been fired. But her contract states that while there is an investigation going on as to whether or not it the firing was deserved, she still collects her pay.

    And the fail rolls on, I wonder how harsh things would be if she was male in this situation. As there is a huge double standard when it comes to pervs, kids and the gender of the perv/victim.
