A teacher in Mossyrock, WA accused of child molestation was allowed to go back into the classroom, and only after the floods of parent letters and comments (and parents pulling kids out of the classroom) was he placed on paid leave. It was a huge boondoggle, and the district was unable to actually fire him and he refused to resign. I forget the details and the internet failed to help me on this, unfortunately.
That pesky "innocent until proven guilty" thing. How dare they not fire someone who had not been PROVEN to be a child molester?!?! How many teachers (and others) are accused and their lives ruined - when they did nothing but piss off a whiney little brat, who decided it was a good way to "get back" at the teacher? Seriously.
And if he HAD been fired and found not guilty? I wold urge him to sue - the school district, the superintendent, the BoE, the parents of the kid(s) and everyone else even peripherally involved.
