Massachusetts Teacher Union Official Charged With Embezzlement

A Massachusetts teacher union official has been accused of embezzling almost $20,000 as a teacher union official in Massachusetts. Since teachers in Massachusetts may be forced to pay union dues in order to get or keep their jobs, she may have robbed her fellow teachers’ forced dues money. Susan Spencer has the story in the Telegram and Gazette.

Kerrie M. Clarke, 45, of North Grafton, was released on personal recognizance after a not-guilty plea was entered at her arraignment Thursday in Westboro District Court. She is scheduled to return for pretrial conferences June 1.

Ms. Clarke resigned Nov. 8, 2017, from her teaching position at Millbury Street Elementary School, according to Superintendent of Schools James Cummings. He said earlier that no public money was involved.
