He only worked as a full-time teacher in New York for a year before he was suspended from the classroom for sexually harassing students, but that didn’t stop Aryeh Eller from collecting almost $1 million from the district over the last 13 years for doing practically nothing.
Eller, 46, is the city’s longest sitting ‘rubber room’ teacher.
In 1999 after confessing to sexually harassing students, it was decided he shouldn’t be in the class.
Los Angeles’s School Nightmare: Another Sex-Abuse Scandal
In yet another embarrassment for one of the nation’s largest public-school systems, a fourth-grade teacher is in custody today on suspicion of sexually assaulting 20 children and one adult.
Fifty-seven-year-old Robert Pimentel, who taught at George De La Torre Jr. Elementary School in Los Angeles, has so far been charged with 15 counts of sexual abuse and lewd acts on a child. Prosecutors allege that he inappropriately touched students under and over their clothing from September 2011 until he left his job in March 2012. Before that time period as well, Pimentel had been the subject of parents’ complaints.
I’ve criticized for years the MSM’s feeding frenzy about sex predator priests and the cover-ups in the Catholic Church. My problem is not that the story is covered - the predators and their enablers deserve every bit of exposure and reviling they’ve received, and probably more. Part of my problem is that the MSM has broad-broom smeared a lot of good and decent priests and people. The other large part is the MSM’s double-standard. The MSM hate the Catholic Church, but love public schools, teacher’s unions and teachers to a degree that this much larger and more pervasive predation-and-cover-up story is receiving CYA-grade token coverage. The MSM have been and are part of the predator-enabling cover-up! While cloaking their hatred and lashing out at the Catholic Church in a partially phony (and partially real) “concern” for priest sex abuse victims.
