Two DC teachers fired in 2008 are getting their jobs back and getting more than $200,000 each in back pay.

Public Schools spokesmen said they will not appeal an arbitrator's ruling that Denise Hamilton was a victim of bureaucratic blunders.

DCPS gave the blind educator a working plan to get her special-education certificate, however, she was fired just as that certificate was being mailed out.

Another blind teacher, Fred Kamara, didn't find out he was fired until he requested his 2008/2009 course load from administration.

The District decided to settle his case.

Hamilton and Kamara teach visually impaired children.

They have agreed to accept positions within the school system and are awaiting their placement.
