School districts are losing students.  They can’t afford to have empty buildings and they aren’t allowed to fire teachers under contract. One district has a group of teachers who had abused children in some manner and still could not be fired for cause. So they avoid them full salaries to sit in an empty classroom all day or at home.  I should check and see if they have fixed that. Districts that are already short on money are forced to sell off unused schools to developers. They are causing their own problems.

That is totally insane and ludicrous to say the least.

What kind of a contract is it? Any employer should be able to fire any employee for wrong doing. Sounds like they need to have new contracts drawn up.

They are not causing their own problems... they ARE their own problems!

He was paid to resign

Because he fought back, Berndt got to resign rather than be fired. In either case, he retains lifetime health coverage and his pension, totaling $3,891.17 monthly in pretax benefits. If he lives to the average age of a man in California, he'll reap about $1 million.

In 2010, the Weekly reported in its cover story “The Dance of the Lemons” that the district routinely and secretly pays off incompetent teachers who appeal their firings. Because these ineffective teachers have no firings on their record, they sometimes are hired by other, unsuspecting districts. At least one was rehired to substitute-teach for LAUSD.

The Weekly found that 39 subpar LAUSD teachers appealed their firings between 2000 and 2010. The district, which employs about 33,000 teachers, settled to get rid of 34 of the 39, and spent years fighting to fire the rest. Only four teachers were fired; one was reinstated.

Two years ago, the L.A. Times reported that LAUSD now spends $10 million annually to pay bad teachers not to teach while the district tries to fire them for sexual abuse, inappropriateness or other troubles. The teachers are paid full salary to sit at home or in a special LAUSD “rubber room.”

Teacher's union kills anti pedophile law.

As Biden often says... come on man. How can the teacher's union kill such a bill? Those who killed the bill are the problem.

And as you said... it dates back to 2012 or 9 years ago. So we've been living nightmarish reality for 9 years and nothing is done about it. Sounds like bureaucracy IS the problem. Cover it up. Make it so future instances cannot be uncovered. Corruption to the 10th power 9 years later.

It’s still going on but they aren’t writing about it anymore. Readers have lost interest.

Regardless of whether readers have lost interest or not... the problem is still there and nothing is being done to correct it. That's totally wrong!
