Dismissal Based on Private Conduct.
Zirkel, Perry A.
NASSP Bulletin, v82 v599 p106-09 Sep 1998
Describes a complex court case involving a Massachusetts elementary teacher whose contract was not renewed because she was cohabiting with a suspected (but eventually exonerated) child abuser. School officials should resist the knee-jerk reaction to terminate a teacher's contract on the grounds of narrow, homogeneous community values regarding marital or nonmarital activities.
