    ENOUGH! When will we require very extensive background checks on union protected teachers? Yes, extensive, and renewal investigations every five years. I went through very deep background checks to get my security clearance for the US Army because YOU citizens entrusted me with national security information. I had to go through it every five years for my entire career. I had to be squeaky clean. Yet, you entrust your children to people like this? You must demand no less from teachers. How many stories like this do you need to read before you act?!
