JOHNSTON COUNTY, N.C. — A Smithfield-Selma High School science teacher is out of a job because of a questionable experiment.
Tuesday, the school board voted 4-1 not to renew Jeff Ferguson's contract. The school's principal made the request earlier in the day.
In November, Ferguson asked students to drink milk until they got sick. Ferguson was suspended with pay, then was allowed back in the classroom.
