    Charges have been dropped against a Long Island gym teacher accused by four students of masturbating while watching porn in a school office.

    Newsday reports that one of four students has recanted the allegation. The paper says two other students have refused to cooperate with authorities.

    Prosecutors told a judge on Sept. 27 they were dismissing charges of child endangerment against Aaron Kozlowski because of insufficient proof.

    Kozlowski had taught at North Shore Middle School. The school district is reviewing whether to reinstate him. He's been on paid leave since his April arrest.

    He tells Newsday he's considering litigation against the boys' families mainly to recover his legal fees.

    He says he hopes the boys have learned a lesson.
