Who’s Teaching Your Children?

An arbitrator decides who should teach the children in Wisconsin.  M. D. Kittle has the story in Wisconsin Reporter.

That’s how much taxpayers in the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District [1] paid for the services of Karen Mawhinney, the arbitrator who ordered the reinstatement of a seventh-grade science teacher fired for viewing multiple pornographic images and videos at school.

The total bill was $48,600, split between the school district and the Middleton Education Association [2], the teachers union that represented Andrew Harris in what arbitration experts, including Mawhinney, described as an “extraordinary” process.
