Teacher Calls Students Prostitutes: District

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 -- a short distance from Staten Island -- 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.

Among the district's allegations against Lang were incidents including calling a student a "dirty ho," telling a student who bent over that he would "tap that" and asking students if they would be afraid if his "snake were in their bed," according to the Home News Tribune.

Lang's performance evaluations had been consistently satisfactory.

Lang denied the charges.

His attorney, Edward Cringe, tells the paper he'll appeal the decision.
