I came across this story from a few weeks ago of a sacked and swacked teacher:
He'll never get his job back and could well have sanctions on his license for being a lush with shit for brains.
It's all about getting a little bit of money from a school district insurance company to tide him over until he can find another job. His teaching career is over.
Believe me, teachers have been fired for far, far less or for no coherent reason at all except to cover an administrator's ass, as I was.
