There is so much to discuss here but I guess the main question is: Should this teacher be fired?

Teacher Faces Ax Over Naked Kids "Having Sex"

Kindergarteners, both 5, were found inside school bathroom

FEBRUARY 24--A veteran New Jersey teacher could be fired from her job after discovering two naked kindergarten students “having sex” inside a school bathroom.

Kelly Mascio, 43, is facing termination in connection with the incident late last year at Mullica Township Elementary School in southern New Jersey. Mascio, who has taught for more than 15 years, is suspended with pay while a disciplinary process continues.

As detailed in a Mullica Township Police Department report, two of Macsio’s students--both five-years-old--went into an in-classroom bathroom and removed their clothes. When Mascio, pictured at right, subsequently discovered the children--a boy and a girl--they told her they were “having sex,” cops noted.

Mascio, who immediately reported the incident to the school’s principal, was suspended for allegedly failing to properly monitor the children. A related police investigation concluded with no criminal charges being filed.

If local Board of Education officials certify charges against Mascio, a state arbitrator would be responsible for determining whether the teacher is fired over the September 30 bathroom incident.

Mascio, one of four kindergarten teachers, is still listed on the school’s web site, which includes a link to a personal page (“Mascio Meadow”) created when she previously taught second grade.

The South Jersey kindergarten teacher who stumbled across two of her pupils naked and "having sex" in a bathroom was suspended for supposedly failing to supervise the students, a teachers’ union official said Monday.

But Kelly Mascio "acted in a professional manner and responsibly reported the incident,” Mullica Township Education Association President Barbara Rheault told the Daily News.

The day of the incident was particularly busy as the class was undergoing state testing, Rheault said. Mascio had to usher kids in and out of the room so they could take the tests, she said.

How long were they in the bathroom before she checked, I wonder? My initial reaction is no, she shouldn't be fired.

This. If they were only gone for a few minutes, she shouldn't be fired. If they were gone for an extended period of time before she checked on them, then maybe. I need more information.

Quoting stringtheory: How long were they in the bathroom before she checked, I wonder? My initial reaction is no, she shouldn't be fired.

Is there a policy stating two students of the opposite sex can't go to the bathroom at the same time? I don't think she deserves to be terminated. Sounds like she will be sacrificed in order for the school to save face

How long were the kids in the bathroom? 5 year olds can get naked in a heartbeat. What was she doing that they went into the bathroom unnoticed? If she was helping other students, it would be very easy for two kids to quietly go into the in room bathroom unnoticed for a few minutes. How many students did she have?

I agree....it could have happened so fast. And she immediately reported it, its not like the kids went home and their parents found out and called the school. She wasn't hiding anything!

I think it should be looked into, but there could be an innocent explanation. One of the students could have walked in on their parents having sex and told the other one.

This article does not give enough information.

Can the parents be fired as well?

 She found them in the bathroom naked and reported what she found. WHY do they think she hadn't "properly monitored them" ??? THAT seems like monitoring to me !!!  Why blame her? How about blaming the parents of those little kids ?

What the hell...were the kids watching porn at home? Kids don't know how to have sex uness they have been shown sex and they must have been exposed to porn or , God help us, family dysfunction.

Horrible !
