Teacher fired after allegedly allowing students to share needles
SPRING LAKE, N.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A North Carolina teacher has lost her job after allowing students to share needles in class.
Authorities say biology students at Overhills High School in Spring Lake were doing an experiment on blood types.
They were each given a lab kit with needles, to prick their own fingers.
After using the needles, the students were told to wipe them with alcohol swabs so the next class could use them.
Some concerned students called their parents, who then alerted the principal.
The school sent letters home with every biology student, urging parents to take them to a doctor.
So far, no health issues have been reported.
