This is a very interesting article on teachers, administrators or education employees who lost their licenses for various reasons: embezzlement, fraud, murder for hire scheme and stealing prescription meds from the school nurse (just to name a few). Some of these people have now been able to obtain licensure and are teaching again. Should a person convicted of some of these crimes or had their licenses revoked for various reasons be able to obtain licensure again? If a person is ‘rehabilitated’, should that be taken o to consideration. Read this article and see what you think.
One thing is for sure after reading this. If a teacher can lose her license for taking some students’ prescription meds, then I KNOW that Assistant Superintendent Jennifer Weeks of DeSoto County Schools should have most certainly lost her license for making a subordinate employee regularly supply her with a Schedule IV controlled substance. Just my opinion though.
