Teachers have a tough job
Last week, I read a news story about a former teacher at a Brooklyn high school who agreed to a $450,000 settlement from the city of New York.
The 52-year-old woman, who had been teaching for seven years when she came to the school, said she was sexually harassed and verbally assaulted by her students.
Students touched her breasts and wrote insults about her on a desk, the teacher claimed, and reporting the behavior to the principal did little to help. The educator said her employer responded to her complaint by calling her a “troublemaker.”
