Brooklyn HS Teacher Sex Scandal; Now With More Inappropriate Conduct

The scandalous news of two female teachers discovered during a SING performance at James Madison HS in Brooklyn embracing the language of love in a state of undress has apparently touched off additional investigations, which have discovered that another female teacher apparently engaged in inappropriate conduct with a male student.
Social studies instructor Allison Musacchio is under investigation for having an inappropriate relationship with a male student, sources said.

It is the second scandal in as many days to rock the Midwood school where New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and Major League ballplayer Frank Torre once walked the halls.

School sources said they learned of Musacchio's alleged antics in March, after a female James Madison student saw her ex-boyfriend's phone number on the tenured teacher's cell phone.

Officials found more than 200 texts and calls between the teacher and the male pupil and yanked her from the classroom, sources said. They said the amount of contact was inappropriate.

Musacchio, 31, was also investigated for having a fling with a former student but the probe was dropped because the teen was of legal age and no longer at the school, school sources said.

Attempts to reach Musacchio at her home were unsuccessful Wednesday, but she has told a neighbor the allegations were untrue.
Lawyers for the two other teachers, French teacher Cindy Mauro, 33, and Spanish instructor Alini Brito, 29, claim no wrongdoing and deny the allegations.

Also, the Daily News omits the fact that the most famous attendee of the school is none other than Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Musacchio has also been sent to the Department of Education's rubber room pending investigation.
