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.

Come Tuesday, January 29th, students at Alvarez High School in Providence will have a new physics teacher. You may remember the students went to The Providence Journal last month to complain that instead of having a physics teacher, a history teacher had been teaching their class.
