This man was out of control and irresponsible. The school was absolutely right to fire him. HeRead More should not be responsible for children until he has received treatment and gotten control over his alcoholism. After that, it may or may not be appropriate to re-hire.

Alcoholism is a disease and he should be offered treatment as well as leave without pay while heRead More receives treatment. His choices in behavior are inappropriate, however it sounds like he is screaming for help.

Fired. If the teacher is an alcoholic he should indeed seek treatment and if/when he is in controlRead More and responsible the school system should look at the big picture of his service as a teacher to determine whether or not it would be prudent to rehire. Yes alcoholism is a disease and yes we all make mistakes, but those of us in charge of the lives of others should not get 3 strikes. The children's safety is the first priority.

I'm positively thrilled to see the number of people who've stepped up and thrown their hat in theRead More election ring, particularly in my district (5). I look forward to learning more about each of you. Best wishes to you all!
