AT 10: Teacher fired after list of infractions

Good Wednesday evening.
 
After a lengthy personnel hearing, a Huntsville City school teacher has been terminated. Eleanor Burks had been written up 12 times for everything from verbally abusing her students to helping one student cheat on a standardized test. WAFF 48’s Tiani Jones will have more on today’s action by the school board.
 
Speaking of schools, the Decatur City School system might have to do more with less. Mayor Don Kyle is discussing a plan that would place a cap on how much the city’s schools can receive from sales tax. WAFF 48’s Vincent Crivelli spoke with both the mayor and the school superintendent.
 
And two thieves stole more than a dozen air conditioning units from Bob Jones High School in Madison. They were after the copper, coils and fittings inside. I’ll have more on how you can help solve this crime in this week’s Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers.
 
We’ll see you tonight at 10.
