Memphis mom Elizabeth Jones doesn't allow her boys to walk alone, even near their home.
"It was a dangerous decision," said Jones. "And she probably did it innocently, but I would have a hard time if I was the mom."
All of the details surrounding Johnson's alleged neglect of duty are unclear; it happened in April, and she was suspended without pay five days later.
The board voted Tuesday to proceed with a tenure hearing for Johnson, who first joined the then Memphis City Schools in 2001.
"Part of the board's responsibility is to review the tenure hearing processes and make a decision," said SCS chairman Kevin Woods.
A second teacher was formally brought up on tenure charges Tuesday night as well. Gregory Matthews is accused of instructing a Northwest Prep student to urinate in a trash can after refusing a bathroom break.
