Walled Lake Western High School teacher fired, accused of having porn on computer in class

WALLED LAKE, Mich. (WXYZ) - A teacher at Walled Lake Western High School accused of having porn on his computer in class has been fired. The district immediately removed the teacher from the classroom as soon as it was discovered last week. A new teacher is in place.

Here is a statement issued by the district:

"We hold staff members to high standards of accountability. When allegations surface, we follow our policies and engage in providing appropriate due process prior to taking action for any individual in question. Individuals can make unsubstantiated statements, but the District has obligations to do a thorough investigation.

Immediately upon learning about this, Walled Lake Consolidated Schools put the employee on administrative leave. The District takes these kinds of allegations seriously. We do not tolerate this kind of behavior from any of our employees.  Having adult website addresses on school computers is not tolerated in Walled Lake Schools.

Safety is a priority in Walled Lake Schools and we work collaboratively with each of our employee groups to ensure a safe learning environment for all. The staff member in question is no longer employed by Walled Lake Schools."
