Board Cans Bullying Bankbridge Teacher
Steven Roth could lose his teaching certification because of the incident.
Bankbridge teacher Steven Roth is out of a job, and possibly out of the teaching profession, after the Gloucester County school board voted to fire him Monday night, as reported by NBC10.
Roth, who was caught on tape last month berating student Julio Artuz, has 120 days to appeal the decision, and could lose his New Jersey teacher's certification.
Roth's three-minute rant against Artuz included threats to beat up the teen, as well as belittling remarks and a number of obscenities.
Bankbridge is the county's public special education high school, which draws from around the area. West Deptford sends nine students to the North and South campuses, at a cost of just under $300,000, according to the most recent out-of-district placements approved by the school board.
