District fires teacher over inappropriate photos

EWING, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey school district has fired a high school teacher who is accused of sending inappropriate photos to a male student.

NJ.com reports the Ewing Township school superintendent confirmed Wednesday that the 25-year-old female teacher is no longer employed with the district. The former Ewing High School teacher had been suspended and banned from school grounds since June.
