PA: Professor fired over child-sex conviction must be rehired by Pa. university, state court says

[pennlive.com – 8/31/18]

Lock Haven University must reinstate a mathematics professor who was fired after his 28-year-old conviction for molesting two children was discovered, a Commonwealth Court panel ruled Friday.

Prof. Charles Morgan can’t be allowed to teach high school students who are taking advanced placement classes at the school, however, the state judges found.

That decision, outlined in an opinion by Senior Judge James Gardner Colins, upholds an arbitration ruling won on the prof’s behalf by the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties, the professors’ union.

University officials and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education appealed to Commonwealth Court in a bid to void the arbitration award.

    This shows the glaring double standard in the hysterical society, because the University of San Francisco deliberately hired a man to teach criminal justice who was still on probation after serving a lengthy prison sentence for drug dealing because they believed he could enrich the program by bringing in such experience. I am impressed with the university of SF for doing this because they are correct. He has a true perspective of the justice system, but I am disgusted with PA University for punishing a man for some thing that happened 28 years ago, that he paid his debt to society for. And it isn’t the University’s job to punish and judge this man. That was already done 28 years ago. How can a university expand the minds of the students when there’s are clamped shut?

      If, he was allowed to teach high schoolers, his testimony of the SO encounter at the age he was would have been very important message to these teens.

      USF…my alma mater. It is also, by the way, a Catholic university. Glad to see that they truly practice what they preach…believing in redemption and second changes.
