I would agree, but it is not uncommon. If you look at some of the cases that have come before where the teacher should have been terminated, but due
to the Teachers Union getting involved, they made it all but impossible to get rid of.
The last noted case was where the teacher was convicted of raping a child, and the Union fought to where he was able to get a 10K severance pay. It
took a public shaming of the district and the union before that was changed, and all the teacher got was a 1 month sentence.
And bit of a search, reveals that this is just the tip of the ice berg, where time and time again, a teacher, in a position of authority, was either
accused of or convicted and still had the backing of the Union who would not allow for the teacher to either be dismissed or go without compensation.
It stinks, and ultimately this needs to change.
