    There haven't been any dead beat loser husbands shooting up schools anywhere. A loner adult- yes, bunches of loner kids - yes, and drug dealers have shot up schools.

    Selecting her out for her husband being a tool is morally reprehensible. The administrators at the religious school (who probably believe in an afterlife) will be pissed at themselves when Jesus asks "how did you look after those who needed the most help? ". They'll have to respond "by firing her!".

    So deadbeat loser husbands can't be or aren't violent? This board just keeps getting better. Wow, just wow. Media brainwashing at its finest.

    Didn't say that... said the high profile school incidents every knows about have not been related to spousal abuse. Prove me wrong.

    There are about 800,000 felons on parole with another 4 million felons on probation. Nearly 50% of felonies are violent so that's a ton of ex wives who shouldn't be working according to the logic here.

    Exactly. So many on here so quick to judge, but ultimately this woman (the teachaer) is not their fiduciary--THE STUDENT CHILDREN are. They are to whom the school's primary fiduciary duity is owed, not the employees, who are charged with assisting in diScharging that duty.

    $1.7 mil. for letting her go is complete bunk.

    Yet it is chump change, compared to what the diocese would have been saddled with, had the husband come in and injured and/or killed even 1 student.

    You could multimply that number by 10, and still be conservative.

    The school was on notice of a real danger to its students, and the source of that danger--as far as the school is concerned (the nexus anyway) was this teacher.

    So long teach....we've got kids to protect.

    (and to the OP who immediately cited the child molestation business--the only relevance here, is that the Church is doing what it should have done all along--when an agent of your organization poses a threat to your fiduciary charges....the very first thing you must do, is TERMINATE THE AGENCY. Period. Ask/answer questions later That is the lesson in the wake of the child sex abuse scandals-which clearly should not have required a scandal to make the point...but that's where we are now).
