HINDS COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) – The hearing about an educator who was fired for reading a children’s book continued on Monday, March 28.

Toby Price is the former assistant principal at Gary Road Elementary, who was suspended with pay after reading a book titled, “I Need a New Butt!” to second-graders.

The first part of the hearing happened a week ago, when the superintendent spoke, among others.

Price went on to clarify that if he was given the chance to read the book to children again, he would not, at least not within the Hinds County School District.

What are the next steps? The fate of Price’s job will depend on a decision from the Hinds County School Board.

The decision should be made within two months or so.

Below is a statement from the Hinds County School District concluding the hearing:
