Los Angeles high school science teacher Greg Schiller has returned to his classroom, two months after being suspended by administrators after complaints two of his students put together "dangerous" science projects in his classes. From the LA Times:
Both projects overseen by teacher Greg Schiller were capable of launching small objects. A staff member at the downtown Cortines School of Visual & Performing Arts had raised concerns about one of them. Both are common in science fairs.
"I am very excited to be back with my students and help them prepare for the Advanced Placement tests, which are a week away," Schiller said Thursday. "We have a lot of work ahead of ourselves.”
In a meeting with a senior district administrator, Schiller was told he could return to work Friday, L.A. Unified confirmed.
His classes include Advanced Placement Biology and Advanced Placement Psychology.
Parents and students had quickly rallied behind Schiller. Facebook pages were launched; petitions were circulated. Some students complained that they were being taught by unqualified substitutes. Supporters vowed to rally every Thursday and Friday until his return.
