The Department of Education protects their own deviants, and compensates them hundreds of thousands of dollars for their behavior. Former teacher Alan Rosenfeld is one of them. It’s the way the union contract works. Roland Pierre is another one. See that story below as well.
Alan Rosenfeld hasn’t set foot in a classroom for nearly a decade, since he was accused in 2001 of making lewd comments to junior-high girls and “staring at their butts,” yet the department still pays him handsomely for sitting on his own butt seven hours a day.
In 2001, six eighth-graders at IS 347 in Queens accused Rosenfeld, a typing teacher who filled in for an absent dean, of making comments like “You have a sexy body,” asking one whether she had a boyfriend and making others feel uncomfortable with creepy leers…
Schools Chancellor Joel Klein has kept the scruffy 64-year-old in a Brooklyn rubber room, deeming him too dangerous to be near kids, officials said.
The DOE can’t fire him.
“We have to abide by the union contract,” spokeswoman Ann Forte said.
So Rosenfeld simply collects his $100,049 salary — top scale for teachers — plus full health benefits and the promise of a fat pension, about $82,000 a year if he were to retire today.
His pension will grow by $1,700 each year he remains. He could have retired at age 62, but he stays.
He has also accumulated more than 200 sick days — and will get paid for 100 when he retires.

Rosenfeld, 66, sits in the “rubber room” daily and works on his law practice and real estate holdings valued at $7.8 MILLION.
Look who’s still stinkin’ up the joint: Alan Rosenfeld, the longtime “teacher” the Department of Education believes is a serial pervert and a threat to children — but whom the city can’t fire…
Just yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg agonized over ways to make him a productive employee: “We could use him in the city to help us with our real estate. He’s a city employee after all, he’s getting paid.”
A New York PS 138 teacher molested a sixth grade student. He, Roland Pierre, was arrested on felony charges, which were apparently dropped on a “technicality.” The Board of Education refused to fire him, so for 13 years he has whiled-away his time in the “Rubber Room,” whatever and wherever that is, and received full pay, health insurance and vacations, and of course, his pension. Now 75-years-old, he receives $97,101 annually “for a job he hasn’t done in 13 years.”
Listen to the GOP candidates. Get rid of the Department of Education. A government entity that allows a union to protect child predators needs demolishing. Let’s start over again and give the power to the state where you live, where you, the parent, have a true measure of power. If you live in New York, think of Rosenfeld and Pierre while standing in the grocery checkout – paying exorbitant inflated prices for your produce and funding child predators, or writing a check for school-sponsored fund raising and…funding deviants. Hundreds of thousands of your tax dollars going to perverts. If your child goes to one of these two schools, how about every family pulling their student(s) out of the school. Just empty the classrooms. Do something.
