School board upholds decision to fire a Jones County teacher

JONES COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - A teacher fired for cursing will not get his job back.

All five of the Jones County School Board members upheld their decision to terminate West Jones history teacher Reed Walters.

Last week, a judge released his findings in the case, but it wasn't enough to get Walters his job back.

The school board fired Walters in February for using profanity towards students.  After his termination, the former teacher requested a hearing.

Walters said Thursday he's considering legal action.
