Teachers and staff members of Bangor Public Schools have been suspended and reprimanded after a month-old video surfaced showing the group making vulgar comments about students and other teachers, according to a Fox News report.
The catch is, the teachers get to keep their jobs.
The one person who resigned from her position at the school was Patti White, secretary to the superintendent, after the video showed a group of colleagues playing a cruel game in a local bar wherein they joked about special-needs students and other teachers in sexually explicit terms.
In the game, the teachers had to name three people they would marry, have intimate relations with, or kill, and each named students from the school.

District Attorney Robert Hubert announced to parents at a school board meeting on Monday that two teachers were suspended and four were verbally reprimanded. He said there would be no further action taken against the teachers, noting, “I think they’ve learned their lesson from all of this.”
Parents at the meeting were outraged at the teachers’ conduct — as well as the fact that none of them would lose their jobs.
In fact, some parents had to be escorted from the meeting by police, while others threatened to take their children out of the school.
“You teach your kids to respect authority, and then how do you respect authority figures when they behave like that?” parent Ronnie Booker exclaimed to a reporter.
