Lawyer: Pa. teacher suspended over blog reinstated

A suburban Philadelphia high school teacher suspended over a blog in which she called students "disengaged, lazy whiners" has been reinstated.

A lawyer for Natalie Munroe says she will be allowed to return to her Central Bucks East High School classroom this fall. Attorney Steve Rovner says the district reinstated Munroe to the same school, teaching the same classes.

He says her talents would best be utilized at a different school in the district, but that's not an option. He says Munroe is taking a few days to digest the development.

Munroe was suspended in February after the district became aware of her blog, in which she described some students as "frightfully dim," ''whiny" and "tactless." The Intelligencer of Doylestown reports the district's human resources director confirmed Munroe would return.
