Thanks to the intervention of the Teacher’s Union, a seventh-grade science teacher who was fired for watching pr0n on the job has gotten his job back, and a hefty bonus.
The district’s school board Monday voted in a special closed session to comply with an arbitrator’s 60-page order that demands Harris be reinstated. He was fired in 2010 after receiving and viewing multiple pornographic and sexually inappropriate images and videos, according to a complaint.
To add insult to the district’s injury, taxpayers will have to pay Harris nearly $200,000 in back pay. In total the district will spend nearly $1 million on the case, the brunt of which went to legally defending its position that the firing was fair.
Watch pr0n at work, collect $200K. I’m in the wrong industry.
