AP: 700 NYC teachers are paid to do nothing; Dept. of Education estimates cost at $65 million a year


Because their union contract makes it extremely difficult to fire them, the teachers have been banished by the school system to its “rubber rooms” – off-campus office space where they wait months, even years, for their disciplinary hearings.

The 700 or so teachers can practice yoga, work on their novels, paint portraits of their colleagues – pretty much anything but school work. They have summer vacation just like their classroom colleagues and enjoy weekends and holidays through the school year.
