Suspended teacher works toward resolution


A suspended Dracut High School English teacher is working toward a resolution with his principal and superintendent after a meeting between the three was recently postponed. Robert Moulton, 44, was recommended for termination by principal Richard Manley in early October for insubordination; School Superintendent Steven Stone chose suspension. The actions came as a result of Moulton’s reading of a profanity-laced story, which he had written, to his class last spring. After serving a weeklong suspension, Moulton was then ordered to provide detailed weekly lesson plans to Manley, which the principal says has not been happening. A meeting on the matter will be rescheduled once Moulton is assigned an attorney by the Dracut Teachers Association; Manley has enlisted the school district’s attorney.
