Teacher Who Sexually Harassed Students Has Made $1 Million for Sitting in "The Rubber Room"?!

Disgraced New York City music teacher Aryeh Eller confessed back in 1999 to sexually harassing female students during his one and only year of teaching. He was removed from the classroom and placed in the "rubber room" ... a place where faculty deemed "inappropriate" to be around students go to ... well ... perform no task or function. That has earned Eller $1 million over the 13 years since the sexual harassment admission.

Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted to the controversial story, weighing

in on whether or not tenured teachers should be able to cash in in such a way.
