Audio of teacher discussing noose-making prompts inquiry
NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut school officials say they are investigating recorded audio of what is purported to be a New London High School teacher discussing the details of making a noose.
The teacher is heard on the audio recording going into detail about how a noose could kill someone. The Day reports the teacher's identity has not been confirmed.
School Superintendent Cynthia Ritchie said Tuesday that school administrators were made aware of the discussion when a student shared the recording. Ritchie declined to discuss further details.
Board of Education member Jason Catala says he listened to the audio and cannot imagine how it could be appropriate to discuss such a matter in the classroom. Catala says his first reaction was to call for the teacher to be fired.
