the teacher was a union chapter chairman at the school and had received a letter Thursday informing him that that he was being reassigned to a so-called “rubber room” — a term for classrooms where teachers removed from teaching duties are assigned — as discipline for imposing corporal punishment on a student.

The teacher barricaded himself inside the classroom, saying, “I have a date with God,”

You know, I realize this is a serious situation here but if I had to teach kids in Jr. High, I think I’d be a little bit crazy too.

Despite your apparent craving for this to be a Muslim or something, I'm guessing "white male."

PS 216 has the same name, on Ave. X between West St. and East 1st St. I went there for 2nd-5th grades.

This kinda hits close to home.

Probably a student didn't want to have sex.

“where teachers removed from teaching duties are assigned — as discipline for imposing corporal punishment on a student.”

I agree...white male.

I went to PS 69 in Clason Point. The best part of being from the Bronx is that the word “from” implies “no longer”.

I thought teachers these days liked them a little younger, say 14 or 15 years old.

Hmmm, only about a half-mile from Yankee Stadium. Are they off to that poor of a start?
