A substitute teacher at North Attleboro High School in Massachusetts has been fired for allegedly smoking marijuana in front of a classroom of students.
The teacher, who was not identified, was removed from the class Monday afternoon after students reported the teacher to school officials, WHDH-TV reported. It was unclear if the teacher will face criminal charges, the station reported.
“The incident at North Attleborough High School was entirely unexpected and unprecedented,” Principal Peter Haviland said in a statement, calling it “in no way a reflection” of the school. The incident remains under investigation.
