    Teacher encourages 5th grade students to make Christmas cards to send to lonely people, gathers them up, and sens them off to an inmate who was actually charged with possession of child pornography. These cards contained the names and return address of said children, and the teacher told the kids they might actually become pen pals.

    For some reason, even though the school wants to fire her, they can't.

    I would think hooking kids up with a potential child molester would be enough to do it.

    Why did the teacher still have a job when the article was published Feb. 16? Probably because the investigation didn't conclude until Feb 15 (http://www.nycsci.org/reports/02-12 Dean Melissa Ltr.pdf). The teacher was apparently removed from the classroom immediately after her alleged acts were made known to the school district. I don't see any evidence that there was anything wrong with the school district's response to the incident.

    We still have a thing called due process correct? I'm going to have to throw you all in prison until I get this checked out.
