A former Dracut High School English teacher who was fired for insubordination has been issued a restraining order, stating that he will be arrested if he is found on school district property. It was the latest event in a controversy that tracks back to April, when teacher Robert Moulton was suspended for a week after reading a poem to his class that contained questionable language. Following his suspension, Moulton allegedly did not submit mandatory detailed lesson plans to his principal, Richard Manley. He was at first suspended, then fire , by Superintendent Steven Stone in October. Stone, Moulton, Manley, and various attorneys and representatives held a lengthy meeting recently to discuss the termination; the restraining order against Moulton was issued the next day.
