Principals Behaving Badly Get Off Easy


Rather than go through extended disciplinary hearings, New York City settled with some school principals last year, allowing them to quietly pay fines or take a demotion and get right back to work. One principal who benefited from the plea deals was charged with tackling a student and sending an anti-Semitic e-mail, but instead of getting fired, he was just made a teacher. Depending on the school, that could be punishment enough. [NYP]
