The permanent NJ teacher fired for restricting the students in bathroom

WAYNE, N. J. – A state arbitrator has fired a tenured teacher in New Jersey for the limit of two students in a bathroom.

The arbitrator found Donna DeMarco was guilty of behavior inappropriate for the use of the childbirth as a means of punishment or behavioral control.

DeMarco was a teacher at Packanack elementary School in Wayne. Half of her class of 16 students were special needs or had autism.

The teacher testified that she used the bathroom, incarceration as a de-escalation technique for two students during the 2015-16 school year. She also said that she meant to the children who use derogatory terms in front of colleagues as a means of venting.

The arbitrator said that the name-calling was unprofessional, but not a reason for termination.

DeMarco was adopted in 2006 and the mandate given in 2009.

Her lawyer refused to comment.
