Porn Public Schools Are A-OK With Wisconsin Teacher Union

A former 7th-grade science teacher at Glacier Creek Middle School in the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School, one Andrew Harris, was fired nearly four years ago for viewing and sharing pornographic material during work hours.  Other educators also viewed the material but Harris’ acts were viewed as more egregious.

ANDREW HARRIS AND HIS PORN SCHOOL

Andrew Harris and the Porn School

A female teacher who was shown an image of a nude woman by Harris complained and an investigation followed.

After an investigation, it was found that more than 30 educators in the district viewed or shared pornography and other inappropriate content on school computers in violation of the school computer policy. The district alleged that Harris viewed material that was more obscene.

Thirty educators at this Porn School, THIRTY, were playing around with porn during work hours and on school property.

Instead of buying into Gov. Walker’s reforms which would have given the district the option of not accepting collective bargaining in all areas, they decided it was fairer to let a union arbitrator make all the final decisions. The result is the union won. After spending nearly a million dollars, the district is forced to take this man back. They have to give him $200,000 in back pay.

While Walker’s Act 10 limits what many believe to be the outsized power of public labor unions, Middleton-Cross Plains contract includes many of the pre-Act 10 labor protections that have driven school district costs to unsustainable levels.

The Middleton-Cross Plains contract includes the same grievance process language that has cost the district nearly $1 million to fight court-ordered reinstatement of Andrew Harris.

The School Board President is vehemently opposed to the Walker reforms that would have saved the taxpayers nearly $1 million dollars and would have allowed them to fire the teacher.

Districts who adopted the reforms have saved hundreds of millions of dollars.

Obscene porn-viewer, Andrew Harris, will go back to teaching the same grade and subject in a different school. Parents who are upset have no recourse but to accept it because the district will not allow students to withdraw from the class.

The teacher was only one of 30 but his actions were the most egregious which is why he was fired and the others were suspended or had letters of reprimand put in their files. The arbiter found that some of his actions were more egregious but others weren’t.

That’s all moot now because this case means it is okay to view and share porn in a public middle school.

The district could have settled with Harris for around $20,000 just after district officials learned of the situation in 2010, or for $400,000 in 2012 after the arbitrator’s ruling. In October, the district declined because part of the settlement included a letter of reference for Harris, Hibner said.

So instead of a letter of reference, and I give them credit for that, they have to expose the children in the school to a man who everyone now knows is a porn-viewing teacher.
