RIVERDALE -

A Bronx principal is under fire after some fed-up teachers are accusing him of gambling at work instead of doing his job.

Steven Schwartz is the principal at P.S. 24 The Spuyten Duyvil School in Riverdale.

He is accused of posting to a blog and now deleted Twitter account about horse racing during school hours.

According to a New York Post report, in one post he wrote, “This whole work thing kills my Twitter time."
