Heroin-using elementary school teacher protected by union; parents furious


New York parents were outraged to hear that an elementary school teacher had been shooting up heroin while on the job — and the teacher’s union representing him is thwarting efforts to reveal his identity.

A school employee found heroin and drug paraphernalia in the faculty lounge at Benjamin Cosor Elementary School on Fallsburg, N.Y., on two separate occasions, according to Fox News

When police narrowed the list of culprits, the teachers union refused to allow them to be drug tested. Of the eight the police were investigating, only one non-union employee submitted to testing.

A letter informing parents of the incident only disclosed that an “employee of the District found drugs and related paraphernalia in a school rest room.” It failed to mention that the drug was heroin, that it was found more than once and that it was discovered in the faculty lounge.

“I have to take a drug test to put kids on that bus I drive,” said Keith Unger, a father of three students and bus driver for the district, told Fox News “The Kelly Files” host Megyn Kelly Friday. “And now I have to send my three children to school and not know if it’s their teacher, or if their teacher is going to OD because they want to shoot up in the bathroom, and it’s scary.”

Robert Heyward, the father of a 9-year-old, said he’d always assumed teachers were drug-tested because they work with children.
“They should be drug tested, and if they have a problem with that, it’s their problem,” Heyward told Kelly.

    I hope at least they get help for the teacher. What happens if they OD in the classroom in front of the kids? They would have to live with something like this?
