Oklahoma teacher’s certification facing suspension after affair with student
Posted on Thursday, September 22nd, 2016
A teacher in Tishomingo, Oklahoma may have her professional certification suspended due to allegations that she is having a sexual affair with a student, a report of Fox News 12 stated on September 20.
According to reports, Shelley Jo Duncan is under investigation by the Oklahoma State Department of Education due to her potential sexual relationship with a minor student. The Department of Education will seek to suspend Duncan’s teaching certification due to the allegation that she is having an affair with a 14-year-old student. Residents of Johnston County believe it is best to suspend Duncan’s certification even if the case is still under investigation. Though Duncan was arrested last week, she has not been charged officially.
