St. Paul School Records Show Light Punishment for Serious Violations
KSTP ^ | 3-25-14 | Jay Kolls

After a check of the last two years of disciplinary records at St. Paul Schools KSTP found dozens of records that show employees got off with relatively light punishments for serious violations.

One employee, who worked on a bus route, missed 18 days of unexcused work, and only received a written reprimand. A teacher at a high school sent out dozens of Tweets with sexual references that students had access to and only received a one-day, unpaid suspension. Another employee showed up to school "under the influence of alcohol" and received a one-day, unpaid suspension. And yet another teacher called an elementary student the "N-word" and was suspended, without pay, for only five days.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS reviewed these records after an elementary school custodian, Walter Happel, was charged with felony peeping for spying on a student in the bathroom. He had several other incidents of bad behavior with students dating back to 2003, but only received written reprimands and was allowed to continue working in St. Paul Schools until he resigned in late February.

Good luck to those parents. Between the union and "data privacy", you'll never get answers. Just shut up and pay your taxes, suckers.

The shocking thing with disciplining government employees is that even when the government does fire people, they take the government to court and win, get their job back and then sit around doing literally nothing, daring their bosses to say something about it.
