One of our teachers is leaving at semester. He has found a job elsewhere that is not teaching that will pay at least twice the salary that he is currently earning (and had applied for the job last April). Although it would be nice for him to finish the year it is not going to happen. The school board considered his resignation last night and has decided to take action and revoke his teaching certificate for breaking contract. Considering the fact that he will not need a teaching certificate for his new position I feel that this action is vindictive and petty. I find it sad that a teacher who has served the district well and is leaving things in a better shape than when he arrived would be treated like this at the end.
