Teacher Who Called Students "Prostitutes" Should Be Fired: Judge

An administrative law judge has found a New Jersey school district should fire a popular teacher who routinely called female students prostitutes and made unwanted advances at a female teacher.

Officials suspended James Lang without pay from his tenured job as an English teacher at Fords Middle School in Woodbridge 20 months ago.

The principal testified some students were afraid to go to Lang's class.

The judge found Lang violated all standards of decency with his "grotesque and sexual" behavior.

Lang's performance evaluations had been consistently satisfactory.

Lang denied the charges.

His attorney, Edward Cringe, tells the Home News Tribune he'll appeal the decision.
