Prediction: Dallas is going to need a criminal lawyer by the end of the year. You just don't quit a job like this with not plan forward.

If he ends up at Pulaski before June 30 you may be correct.

Pulaski?

A facility of the Baltimore County school system (offices, support services) where staff accused of some sort of wrongdoing and are being investigated are sent to work in order to get them out of the schools. It is located off of Pulaski Highway in the White Marsh area. Every employee of BCPS is aware of what "being sent to Pulaski" means.

Thanks, I wasn't familiar with the term.

Some teachers like the 90 minute periods and some hate it. It does seem to work better in high school. In middle school the attention span of the kids sometimes does not last for 90 minutes, which I suppose is understandable.

 

Each school should be able to decide for itself.

I am sure he approved of you indoctrinating captive students with your looney left ideology.

 

True dat.

Well my wife and I had about 35 years or so in the system. And I just asked her about the phrase. Neither one of us ever heard of it.

Guess it was because of squeaky clean impeccable success rates as teachers. ;) :)

BEEEEEP BEEEEEP 

 

This is a warning. A geezer has attempted to look cool by using phrases reserved for younger humans.

 

This is the first warning. Repeated attempts to try to "look cool" will be punished in ways a geezer would not wish to contemplate. 


Pessimism is just an ugly word for 'pattern recognition'.

Ask around to some current BCPS employees. It's hardly a secret. When a school principal is suddenly gone from his/her school, and one walks into the Pulaski office and there he/she is working the reception desk, it can be awkward, to say the least.  :)

In NYC, the practice is called the "rubber room". Teachers can sit around doing nothing, collecting full pay and raises, for years! (Link.)

We tend to joke about it, but it is a necessity (as long as it is not abused). A teacher accused of improper behavior is entitled to have the allegations investigated, and if found to be false then the person needs to be given their position back. We are not talking criminal allegations, but rather some violation of policy. It has become fairlly commonplace for students (and sometimes parents) to make false (or highly exaggerated) accusations, and in fairness to the person accused of something they need to be placed in a non-classroom setting until the matter is resolved, one way or another. There have been instances of administrators being placed in that situation as well, and they also deserve a fair investigation (although if found to have violated a serious policy they can be somewhat easier to terminate than a tenured teacher). I have no doubt that in places with a very strong teachers' union like NYC a teacher who should be fired ends up on the payroll longer than one would expect, and teachers who should have been exonerated get stuck in limbo because of bureaucratic snafus. Your link seems to give examples of both.

But the investigation should take weeks or (at most) months; not years.

Yep. But we have bureaucracies to feed!   :D

If Dance were being forced out for doing something unethical, I doubt he'd be allowed to work through the end of the school year

I don't know why he resigned but there are no signs that it was anyone's choice but his own...
