A Harnett County teacher has been fired after school officials said she allowed biology students to prick themselves with lancing needles as part of an experiment and reusing the needles with other students.
Officials said Miyoshi McMillan of Overhills High School in Spring Lake conducted a lab Oct. 24 on blood typing.

School spokeswoman Patrician Harmon-Lewis says McMillian used a lab kit that included synthetic blood and seven lancets used to obtain drops of blood for testing.

Harmon-Lewis says McMillan provided the lancets for each lab group. She said after the students used the needles, they used alcohol swabs and saved the needles for the next class to use.

The school sent letters home with every student in the biology classes.

McMillan began as a substitute teacher in 2009.

    This lady is very smart the kit should have not been place in a science lab if it was not used for public use. This lady is going places and this setback is just a comeback be strong!!! People need to stop trying to bring down a African American Race!!! That is what is wrong with our race now. All other races cover for each other but African Americans want to see other African American down!! What a shame!!!
