Oklahoma educators charged in child abuse case may resign

Oklahoma educators charged in child abuse case may resign
(Information from: The Oklahoman, http://www.newsok.com)
PERRY, Okla. (AP) – A principal and a teacher north of Oklahoma City who are accused of failing to report alleged child abuse may resign.
An agenda shows that the Perry Public School board will meet Monday to consider the resignations and resignation agreements of Upper Elementary School Principal Kenda Miller and math teacher Jeffrey Sullins.
The Oklahoman reports that the educators are charged with failure to promptly report child abuse or neglect.
The charges came after 86-year-old teaching assistant Arnold Cowen was accused of inappropriately touching girls, ages 10 to 13.
Miller and Sullins were suspended by the school board after their arrests in February.
Miller has filed a lawsuit against the Oklahoma Board of Education, arguing that the board wrongly sanctioned her by issuing an emergency order.
