    The question I have is why this man's license wasn't revoked in Michigan? Embezzlement of any kind is disqualifying for being an educator in every state of the union. Had he had his license revoked like he should have had, it would have shown up in a background check of his license. Instead, this man gets out of Dodge to go to work for Washoe County School District, and it is more than a year after he was hired that they find out about this conviction. Somebody seriously dropped the ball. The man should not be allowed to work in any school district anywhere in the United States. Teachers are regularly fired for nothing and they can't reapply at the districts where they had worked, yet clearly unfit principals and other administrators can float from job to job, from state to state without punishment. Unreal.
