The educator attempted at demonstrating their quality of work outweighed the quantity of lateness but decision-makers weren’t convinced. NJ.com reports,


The state-appointed arbitrator, David Gregory, a professor at St. John’s University School of Law in New York, was dismissive of Anderson’s claim that the quality of his teaching outweighs his frequent tardiness.

“At most, [Anderson] uses micro-quibbles of a few unpersuasive explanations, with a macro-default position that even when he is late he nevertheless delivers a superb educational experience to his grateful students.”

The New Jersey teacher, Arnold Anderson, was tardy 46 times during the 2014-15 school year and 65 times during the 2013-2014 school year.

Anderson will be suspended without pay until January of 2016.
