Bronx Science teacher Barry Selman fired for stroking his balloon in class

This guy doesn’t need to be in the classroom anymore.
NY Post reports a Bronx science teacher lost his job when he chose to teach elementary school kids about static electricity — by stroking a balloon held at his genitals.

But while axed PS 41 teacher admits the move was “100% inappropriate,” he’s still suing to get his job back.

Selman was canned this month for the juvenile stunt and for making a crude remark about his boss.

His suit claims the firing was a “draconian, excessive and shocking” penalty.

In a cringeworthy Department of Education hearing, Selman’s paraprofessional testified that Selman, while standing in front of his second-grade class, “placed a 6- to 8-inch-long, 3- to 4-inch-wide balloon to his crotch area. He was waving it up and down and stated to her, ‘This is for your daughter.’”
