Calif. teacher's aide kept working after border drug bust

A California special education substitute was allowed to stay in the classroom after he was arrested at the border with more than $500,000 worth of cocaine and methamphetamine, according to a report from NBC 7.

While state law requires law enforcement agencies to notify school officials about such arrests, the San Diego TV station found that “there's no similar federal law or mechanism for notifying schools of federal arrests.”
