Guilty Till Proven Innocent

Carodozo science teacher Leonard Brown has been removed from his classroom, after a student accused him of having touched her breast during a physics demonstration. Mr. Brown maintains his innocence:

"Assuming I wasn't moral and ethical, I'm not stupid," he said. "Do they think I'd be stupid enough to molest a girl in front of 34 witnesses? To me, this is absolutely insane."

Not to the DoE, though. And thanks to the new UFT contract, which is up for renewal, Mr. Brown can look forward to a 90-day unpaid suspension, whether or not the charges are ultimately sustained.
