SICK… NY Teachers Union Reinstates Molesters

The New York Teachers Union has reinstated 14 teachers of highly dubious behavior.
Breitbart reported:

What are parents to do when their child comes home from school with stories about “this creepy guy in my class” – and it turns out to be the teacher? That’s a very real concern for parents with children in New York City public schools, where 14 teachers of highly dubious character have been reinstated to the classroom – and two others have been given “desk duty” – thanks to appeals by their powerful teachers union, the United Federation of Teachers. reports that 16 teachers “kept their jobs after being brought up on egregious charges, some sexual, some involving excessive personal familiarity with students.” A few examples: Gym and health teacher Willie Laraque was charged with bending a male student over a desk, leaning in to him and saying, “I’ll show you what is gay.” The Daily News reports Laraque is back in the classroom after paying a $10,000 fine. Norman Siegel, a high school teacher, was accused of pressing his genitalia against a female student’s leg. Siegel only received a 45-day unpaid suspension, “although the arbitrator found that the girl’s charge was likely true” and that Siegel “was previously accused of a similar offense,” the Daily News writes. There’s also a case involving Edward Cascio, a gym teacher who accepted pornographic pictures from a student – of another student. Cascio was back at work after serving his three-month suspension. The district tried to fire these individuals, but the UFT appealed the decisions to arbitrators, who gave the teachers their jobs back. “Why would arbitrators throw kids to the wolves?” asks a Daily News editorial. “Because they make a living deciding such cases – and because they are hired by joint agreement of the Education Department and the UFT.

    As a public school teacher, this story absolutely sickens me! These perverts should not only be fired, but have assault charges brought against them. If I were the parent of one of the students, I would be going to the police and filing a report. I would also organize a mass protest of the school’s parents. It seems that mobster unions only understand that kind of a wake-up call. Just absolutely disgusting. Are not the children our society’s top priority?!?

  • kmacginn

    Oh, and since teachers are mandated reporters, as a fellow staff member I would be pushing the issue with the state.

    No one should doubt the unions’ priorities:

    1. The leadership
    2. Friends of the leadership (like Jimmy “the knife”)
    3. Friends of the friends of the leadership
    4. The Democrat Party.
    5. The union members
    6. Everyone else, like students, maybe

    It is hard to fire union workers. National Child Abuse Prevention Month and we here this story. I would suggest contacting Child Abuse or the Police Department in Your area, Please.

    You can rest assured that arrest will be made and it some instances if the abuser is rehired the state Attorney Office will immediately take action.

    This is a real way to take the trash bags and child abusers out of our schools. There is another site and after these perverts are arrested and then sad to say back out, there name should show up on registry.

    Our kids have a tough enough time as it is. They don’t need perverted adults in their way while growing up.

  • Patty

    I know someone who was abused and did nothing so my mission in life is to tell anyone and everyone that this will NOT be tolerated in our schools, neighborhoods or churches.

    The abusers love working in our schools and they pick out the most vulnerable of children.

    They have time on their hands and once the stake out their target they destroy a child for the rest of their life. Abuse is not just physical it is emotional and verbal.

    Denigrates and stunts emotional growth. It has affects that go beyond childhood on into adulthood.

    Have you read about the sex-ed curiculum in NYC? It is the most pornographic, pro-sex agenda possible. The workbook is said to be legally obscene. There is NO opt out.

    It starts at 11 years old.

    They molest kids minds every day

    thats randi weingarten’s union, hilary rosen’s pal, so what do you expect. the people that run the union are the same people that wanted kevin jennings as the “safe schools czar.” it you wonder safe for whom, this story answers that.

    union members have to work hard to take their unions back from the political left perverts that have usurped the leadership positions.

    GOOD! Let them bring 5,000 of their pervert friends along with them! Teach the kiddies all about perverts. Show them why Susie has 2 Daddies, and one is a pedophile!

    Maybe with enough outrage and disgust the parents will get off their couch’s and vote in a moral school board – and – TOSS THE UNION OUT ON THEIR FAT BUTTS.

    Until the parents, caregivers and society in general get’s a stomach full of this corrupt and perverse society, NOTHING will be done. Like anything though, it’s not enough that you get hired for a good job – you have to show up every day and do the work. It’s not enough to get outraged once every 6 months, but it takes a daily commitment to fight against this evil.

    A Union knows it has power when you can’t fire its members even for things like this. We should tear down every public school in America. Fire every teacher who was educated in a “education” program. We should rebuild our education system as small, community schools, hire people with real world skills and education in subject matters to be taught, and they should be strictly accountable to the community. Step out of line? Fired. Go home and never come back. Just like every other worker in the whole country. It started with “you can’t fire us for being incompetent and lazy” We’ve moved on to “you can’t fire us for criminal sexual abuse”. They all should go today.

    Kill the Union, kill the educrat bureaucracy, and we can have schools that serve our communities instead of schools that exist only as jobs programs and community extortion schemes. The rotten apples have poisoned the entire barrel.

    Randi Weingarten is the president of the United Teachers Union (UFT) in New York. Her partner is indeed Hillary Rosen. Our children go to school and learn and live the homosexual agenda. When at home they watch television and watch the same agenda. And we are to believe that stay at home moms and Mitt Romney’s wife are the real weirdos?

    Reason #16,372 to get your kids out of gummint schools…

  • YourMaster

    the unions have no standards – anyone who pays money into them is afforded protection. If they had standards: of no tards, no rapists, no druggies, and no child molesters… there would be no unions. This country really needs to get rid of unions.

  • Patty

    Public or Private, no child should be subjected to any kind of abuse. And each parent can change this. Call the police first, Start with News in your local area. If that doesn’t work then the Attorney General of your state and if that doesn’t work take it to the Supreme Court. Before it get there, though, it will be rectified. Truthfully, there are too many things work in our children’s school but one most definitely that will never be tolerated is abuse of any kind.

    And talk to your child, listen to their day, do homework with them and in the conversing you can ask little questions, don’t over emphasized because that isn’t good either. Just start with asking about their class, teacher and classmates. You as a parent can listen and learn from your child. That is a start.

  • Patty

    too many things “wrong” in our kids schools but abuse cannot be tolerated.

    Not Work

  • tommy mc donnell

    at one time unions existed to see that the guy who did his job got a fair shake. then in the 1970’s the democratic party infiltrated the unions and took over the positions of leadership. now this is what these leftists do, protect the guy that doesn’t do his job. its the working equivalent of the dole. the union leaders use the union members and their dues for the benefit of the democratic party.

    WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!!!! please remove these leftists. don’t let them have control of your unions any longer, liberate yourselves from the tyranny you now work under.

    Nation’s Second-Largest Teachers’ Union Hires Militant Communist And 9/11 Truther…

    The AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TEACHERS (AFT) is a national union headquartered in Washington, D.C., and is affiliated with the Socialist, thuggish American Federation of Labor–Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO). The AFT joined with the NEA to form an NEAFT Partnership in 2001. AFL-CIO affiliation is optional for them since that was always a sticking point. The AFT and NEA collaboration was charted to strengthen the organizations’ abilities to buy politicians’ votes and to negotiate favorable

    Hiring radicals at the AFT is nothing new. Albert Shanker, the AFT leader who died in 1997, was an avowed Socialist all his life.contracts in the twenty-first century.

    Now the AFT has hired a Socialist, Shaun Richman, who is also a Truther and Osama bin Laden apologist. [Sorry, but I think that he needs psychological help with that mindset.] Shaun Richman, the new deputy director of organizing for the AFT, gained his experience organizing for the Socialist Party USA.
