In my opinion the real story is that the New York City Department of Education does not have the institutionalized strategies to deal with wrong-doing by anyone in their employ. I dont think anything will change in the occurrences of misconduct until the structure of the workplace is reformed "according to a new social and legal contract, one that encourages cooperation, justice, and a heightened and broadened sense of community". (p. 10, Mobbing by Maureen Duffy and Len Sperry).

The City Conflicts of Interest Board slapped a Staten Island principal with a $10,000 fine for trying to get his live-in lover a paid internship, settlement documents published Wednesday show.
College of Staten Island High School Principal Joseph Canale misused his position by attempting to get his partner an internship at the affiliated College of Staten Island, according to the documents.
When College of Staten Island officials refused, the board’s papers say, Canale suggested he’d withdraw his school’s support for the college.
He remains on the job.
Other documents released Wednesday show the conflicts board also hit Brooklyn Public School 38 Principal Yolanda Ramirez with a $3,000 fine for illegally putting her grandson in pre-kindergarten classes at the school.
Ramirez also remains on the job.
