Teacher-Berg Video

By  | 

Two North Platte High School teachers suspended for allowing students to watch a video of the beheading of U.S. civilian Nicholas Berg in Iraq have been called back to work.

Initially the two teachers were told their suspensions with pay were for the remainder of the school year. School is out Thursday.

However, high school Principal Dan Twarling notified the two teachers they could come back a day early. Superintendent Jim Merritt said Twarling wanted the teachers back to make sure all of the grades and papers are in and recorded.

The names of the teachers are not being released by the school because of state confidentiality law.

Merritt says response from parents has been very quiet with only one call being received.
