Teacher loses job over Facebook posts

Akron city schools administrators said David Spondike posted the comments on his Facebook page after witnessing teenagers urinating near his front yard.

The Akron Beacon Journal reported the school board on Monday accepted a referee’s 18-page decision that determined the posting last October violated the district’s staff conduct and social media policies.

The referee’s ruling upholds an earlier decision by school board members to fire Spondike.
