Ok Newsday - look at who got these waivers and who didn't. Is there are predominant racial group or gender?Temporaray assigments make sense - because some retirements and resignments leave districts with no one - however, it also blocks 'new blood'- if you can get an experience old white guy - why give a new person a chance?

Eliminate waivers that last for more than 12 months - that can get any district over a rough spot - plus Mr. Brosnan was with the long island regioanl school support center before he was asked to work in Roosevelt.

From www.fbi.com : "The FBI defines a criminal enterprise as a group of individuals with an identified hierarchy, or comparable structure, engaged in significant criminal activity. These organizations often engage in multiple criminal activities and have extensive supporting networks."

Here on Long Island we call them "school districts".

Its has nothing to do with race... Roosevelt is a prime example.. However, on a grand scale, how do they get away with it?? We continually get raped by our school taxes.. Was Commack or any of these double dipper districts ever threatened by austerity??? I bet these crooks would rather your kids share one pencil before they would lose their loot. I guess your kids washing cars and selling candy pays for this guys salary.. In that case he should wear the garb of a Pharaoh..

Let's cut to the chase here..are these bottom feeders going to jail? Are their pensions revoked and all past payments ordered to be paid back?
Are they losing their homes like the regular 'folk'?

I say put their collective butts in the slammer.

Bet race and gender are issues - most waivers are granted to white men - FOIL SED if you don't believe it.

If these people really just want to work, let them postpone collecting the cash pension and let their home district pay their health benefits, which they're entitled too. When they finally really retire, pay them their full pension then.

I don't know much about the pension system, but is the problem that they must start collecting immediately?

Every member of the School Boards that approved these hirings should be in jail!!!! Their names and pictures should be published by Newsday along with the other mugshots!

This is another disgrace. How does this happen at almost every public sector on Long Island? This is definitely why young people and couples are leaving in droves....

This man and the others who have done the same thing should be in jail. This is absolutely wrong. Their is no justification for this fraud. If you want to retire and collect your pension do that, retire and collect your pension. These people are simply collecting their pension on top of their salaries BEFORE they actually retire.
They belong in jail and their pensions should be forfeited. It is absolutely disgusting that these criminals are allegedly responsible as role models to our kids.

Perhaps this is the reason why it is nearly impossible to get a teaching position on Long Island unless you are 22, BA-only, and therefore able to work for the absolute least amount of money that they can legally pay you.

change the rules if you want, fine by me, but the title "administrators caught double dipping" implies these people did something illegal. NONE of what they did was illegal. The only problem here is Newsdays biased reporting. The real issue here is simply Newsday doesnt like the scenario so lets drum it up to sell papers! They are the ones that belong in jail. I hope when Cablevision buys you they clean house!!
