A new advocacy group headed by former CNN anchor Campbell Brown called Parents Transparency Project found that school workers who were busted for creepy behavior have been able to keep their jobs because of a cumbersome disciplinary process. Since 2007, officials have tried to fire 128 school staffers for sexual misconduct or inappropriate relationships with students but only 33 educators were actually fired.
According to the Daily News:
Many of the school workers busted for creepy classroom behavior have been able to hang onto their jobs for years because of a cumbersome disciplinary process, charges Brown’s statewide group, the Parents Transparency Project.
“The details of these cases are hidden,” Brown said. “Many parents have no idea whether one of these teachers has been entrusted with their children.”
