Apparently It’s Legal In Florida For Teachers To Be Drunk On The Job
A teacher in Florida was suspended without pay for allegedly being so drunk in her middles school classroom that she could barely stand up. But she wasn't arrested or charged. That's because it is technically legal in Florida.
According to the State Attorney's Office in Okeechobee, it is not a criminal offense for a public school teacher to be drunk on the job.
The law says that a "teacher could be charged with child neglect or disorderly intoxication if that teacher is drunk and hurts someone or damages property." But the teacher was never given a breathalyzer or sobriety test.
The teacher is still at work, but parents of her class are trying to do something about it.
