The teacher at the center of a controversy over a classroom video has now been suspended with pay, according to the Rowan Salisbury School System.
Tonya Dixon-Neely teaches Social Studies at North Rowan High. She is heard on the video telling a student that he could get arrested for being critical of President Obama, and that people were arrested for being critical of President Bush.
“Effective today, Tanya Dixon-Neely has been suspended with pay while a thorough investigation is being conducted,” school officials told WBTV when asked about Dixon-Neely’s status.
The link to the video first showed up at WBTV on Tuesday of last week.
