California schools struggle to deal with problem teachers, staff

A series in the Los Angeles Times examines how effectively districts across California are dealing with teachers and other staff who are failing their students. In the Los Angeles Unified school district, "about 160 instructors and others get salaries for doing nothing while their job fitness is reviewed. They collect roughly $10 million a year, even as layoffs are considered because of a budget gap," according to a report by Jason Song. One teacher has continued to collect his salary for the past seven years while his fitness to teach has been under evaluation by the district.
