Ron Tuitt has been fired from his job as a second-grade teacher at a Paterson, New Jersey, elementary school for urinating in bottles during class and forcing students to take the bottles to the restroom and flush the contents. Court documents claim Tuitt did this at least three times a week between 2006 and 2011. Peter Tirri, president of the city's teachers union, defended Tuitt and said he was being unfairly treated because of his popularity with students.
