City spent $1 million trying to fire this teacher — and failed

NYP: The city has lost a four-year, $1 million battle to fire a teacher arrested in the Occupy Wall Street protests.

David Suker, a US Army veteran who taught at-risk youths in The Bronx for 14 years, was removed from the classroom in December 2011. He was charged with riling up students during an NYPD presentation at a school town-hall meeting by complaining he had been roughed up by cops, showing a scar on his head, and exchanging high-fives and fist bumps with teens.

Suker was also charged with failing to immediately report one of his five Occupy Wall Street arrests in Washington Square Park on Nov. 2. He notified the Department of Education three days after getting out of jail.

But now Suker, 47, has won his job back — and $260,000 in back pay.  more here

  1. are parents still submitting their young ones to this atrocity called “public schools”?

    if you love you children you would homeschool them.

  2. Army vet or not (and I’m questioning his time in service, and method of departure), anyone wearing a Che t-shirt is just begging to be made into a walking 100 yard downrange target.
