A New York teacher paid $75,000 a year filmed himself surfing the internet and killing time yesterday to show US residents where their taxes were going.
Francesco Portelos taught technology at a school in Staten Island until last spring, when he was removed from his classroom role.
Portelos says he was reassigned after he caught the school principal "engaging in financial misconduct", a claim the principal has not responded to.
"I'm getting paid $75,000 to sit around," Portelos said.
"They came after the wrong guy, and I'm not taking it lying down.
"My methods are not conventional."
More than 200 New York educators suspected of misconduct or incompetence may be in similar situations, Education News reports.
But school officials said reassigned teachers like Mr Portelos were supervised and worked in administration.
"Francesco Portelos has been extremely difficult to work with, was transferred twice, and there are multiple investigations pending against him," spokeswoman Connie Pankratz said.
Mr Portelos also made headlines in March after he created a website to post embarrassing emails from the school principal.
Portelos said he planned to continue his live video streams unless blocked by administrators.
"Now I have to use my tech savviness to survive," he said.
