Storyboard Text

  • The Marc Morrison case led the California Supreme Court to determine that in order to be immoral conduct or unprofessional conduct, a nexus between the conduct and teaching ability must exist.
  • Sexual conduct is a hot topic when it comes to teachers personal lives. Teachers can be dismissed when their sexual conduct is immoral, especially when it is in pubic and criminal. 
  • In a Delaware court case on Leon Skripchuck it was determined that conviction of a felony was grounds for dismissal. 
  • Conviction of a misdemeanor doesn't justify dismissal without a nexus. This was proven true in a West Virginia case on Brian Powell. His conviction of "domestic battery" did not provide a nexus to his teaching ability. 
  • California teacher Joseph Watson was denied a secondary teaching credential because of excessive drinking because the court determined he was unfit to teach.
  • Teachers cannot be dismissed for cohabitation, using vulgar or obscene language off campus, or being obese. Teachers are also protected from age discrimination by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Equal Protection Clause. Although, teachers must be able to perform their duties with reasonable accommodations.
