The rubber rooms are holding cells for good people who have not done their job.
"Oh yes, I've heard that before", you say? No, I'm not referring to the job of teacher, para, secretary. The job that these good people didn't do is to be silent about the Principal stealing money, abusing children in the building, showing racial discrimination, not giving special needs kids the services they must have to succeed, etc. I have been speaking to these people for 4 years, and I can say without hesitation that I would want any and all of these people in the schools of my 4 children. The imprisonment in these rooms is a violation of the due process rights and Constitutional right to defend oneself, and must end. Now.
