Phenix City School superintendent, Dr. Larry DiChiara, says he bases his decision let Korey Abercrombie back in the classroom on the following:
- His was charged with a misdemeanor
- He was let out on bail. If he was a menace to society a judge would not have let him out.
- The incident did not happen on school grounds.
Dr. DiChiara adds Abercrombie is a senior English teacher and he wanted him in the classroom to give seniors their final exams.
