Atlantic City teacher returns after throwing book
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - January 15, 2013 (WPVI) -- An Atlantic City High School teacher returns to class Tuesday following a 120-day suspension for throwing a book that hit a student in the head.
Piano teacher Christopher Lorge admitted tossing the paperback in February because the student was talking on a phone and wearing earphones.
The district suspended Lorge and started proceedings to terminate him.
But The Press of Atlantic City reports a state Education Department arbitrator found while the teacher displayed a "serious lack of judgment," he showed remorse and had worked 10 years without disciplinary action. The arbitrator declined to fire him.
