The board of education in New Brunswick, N.J. cannot fire a tenured elementary school teacher who showed up late for work 111 times over the last two years, a state arbitrator has ruled.
The habitually tardy, taxpayer-funded teacher is Arnold Anderson, reports NJ Advance Media. He teaches in a third-grade classroom at Roosevelt Elementary School, in a dilapidated part of New Brunswick full of old, modest homes. He’s been making an annual salary of $90,000 (plus a generous benefits package).
