    put in that bad teachers building where they go when they can't be fired but they can't be trusted in the classroom.

      That's an anti-union, anti-tenure myth.  Teachers who capriciously assault students can not only be fired for cause, but prosecuted and imprisoned.   Even for a teacher guilty of a sick criminal act like this, the union will ensure due process is followed, but there's no such thing as a teacher who can't be fired for criminal actions on the job.
