Liberty County Teacher to Keep Their Jobs

Two Liberty County high school teachers will be keeping their jobs. The two teachers were put on administrative leave for the rest of the school year after they allowed students to watch the video of Nick Berg's beheading. Berg was the American civilian worker who was killed in Iraq.

Teachers were discussing Berg's brutal execution in a current affairs class when the video was brought up on the internet.

The Liberty County Board of Education released a statement saying this was a personnel issue and neither the punishment for the two teachers nor their names will be released.
