— A ruling is expected next week on whether a former Johnston County teacher can go back to the classroom.

Jeff Ferguson asked a judge to over turn the school board's decision not to renew his contract last year.

Some student volunteers got sick after he challenged them to drink a gallon of milk in an hour for a science experiment.

The school board stands by its decision to fire Ferguson.
