Maryland education board upholds teacher's termination

The Maryland State Board of Education has upheld the 2011 termination of a teacher by a county school board. The board initially fired the popular teacher for repeated misconduct and insubordination after he reportedly failed to stop inappropriately interacting with students. The teacher argued that this constituted wrongful termination, characterizing himself as "the innocent victim of a witch hunt." The MSBE ultimately dismissed the teacher's claims and supported his termination after "a careful fair review of the facts." According to the MSBE's findings, the teacher received at least seven written warnings for "inappropriate" conduct with students and was transferred to different schools several times during a 17 year period. Administrators contend that the teacher repeatedly ignored these warnings, accusing him of inappropriate touching and massaging male students, asking them to remove their shirts and to sit on his lap and meeting with them privately in violation of school regulations.
