7 elementary school staff hire lawyers
Fallsburg police investigating the reported discovery of heroin and drug paraphernalia in a faculty bathroom at Benjamin Cosor Elementary School say the refusal by a group of teachers to cooperate is hampering their probe.
No one has been charged, but six teachers and an aide were identified as having used the men's room before a school staff member reportedly found a heroin baggie on Feb. 11.
Just before the winter break in December, heroin and needles were reportedly found in the same bathroom.

Back in my day, you didn’t want to go into the teacher’s lounge because the air was blue with cigarette smoke.
I’m betting there’s a copy of “Dreams from My Father” on the coffee table.
“Don’t talk to police.”
Great video link there.
Another good proverb is to never debate — either you agree with your opponent, or they are just trying to waste your time.
From the article:
“He’s embarrassed, and he’s also angry that he has to defend himself,” Hart said of his client. “He doesn’t feel that he has to be defending himself against something he’s not involved in.”
I think that’s for the POPO to decide counselor.
Wait! Where’d all the people who defended that junkie actor go?
Let me guess- this is also no reason for firing a teacher, right?
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
