Teacher charged with assault, fired for spanking students

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio (AP) - A northeast Ohio school district says it won't use a man as a substitute teacher again after he allegedly spanked two young students.

The Vindicator newspaper of Youngstown reports that a 63-year-old McDonald, Ohio, man is accused of spanking an 8-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl during a gym class on Tuesday. John E. Jerome pleaded not guilty Friday to a misdemeanor assault charge and was released on his own recognizance.

Warren schools says he has been certified to work as a substitute teacher since the 2010-'11 school year, but that he will not be called again.

The school district says spanking or hitting by a school employee isn't allowed.
