Transferred Miramonte teachers wait - and learn to sew

Remember all those teachers who were summarily moved out of Miramonte Elementary School in February after two colleagues were accused of sexually attacking children at the school? Fox 11's Phil Shuman found out what they are doing. It isn't teaching.

They cool their heels each day at an unopened future high school two miles from their old campus, working on what the LAUSD calls professional development. But it sounds like they really are just hanging on until they can go back to their kids. One teacher tells Shuman they have classes in knitting and sewing, so I guess that's nice.
