US teacher who likened Bush, Hitler reinstated

A high school teacher who triggered an uproar by telling students that some of President George W. Bush's remarks sounded like Adolf Hitler will be back in the classroom Monday, vowing to be a better teacher while still promoting "social justice." Social studies teacher Jay Bennish was reinstated Friday after more than a week on paid leave while officials investigated whether he broke school district rules. Cherry Creek School Superintendent Monte Moses declined to say what the investigation found or whether Bennish had been punished, but said Bennish's "practice and deportment need growth and refinement."
