Listen to the interview with Superintendent Susan Lusi

Thursday we heard the story of a Providence high school teacher, who ended up teaching a physics class even though her expertise is in history. Providence school officials now say they have hired a physics teacher to takeover the class next week. I asked Providence Superintendent Susan Lusi to explain why the district allowed a history teacher to substitute in a high school physics class.
