    Jason Roberts, 36, teacher at P.S. 078 Anne Hutchinson, New York City Department of Education, Bronx, New York City, New York, "fired for being incompetent and abusive"

    Bronx teacher accused of abuse and threatening a mass shooting can't get job back, judge rules

    A Bronx teacher who was fired for being incompetent and abusive — and threatening a mass shooting — can’t have his job back, a judge has ruled. Jason Roberts, 36, was fired from Public School 78 in February for a slew of offenses, including allegedly telling a colleague, “Don’t worry, when bullets fly I will spare you and your family.” It took a long time for the city to be able to fire Roberts — a perennial problem for the city when it comes to trouble teachers ...


    In that time, he allegedly warned that “bullets are going to fly;” blew a whistle directly into a student’s ear; gave another teacher the finger; spat on a student; hung up on the principal; told students they could attack another student and break his glasses; passed gas in students’ faces; threw a block of wood at a student, and shouted things like “bitch,” “white devil” and “suck a goat’s (expletive deleted)” when talking to students, parents and colleagues, according to court papers.


    He was given the boot after a hearing officer found his conduct “disgraceful.”
