Despite a show of support from students and parents, Brownsburg High School orchestra teacher Christian Starnes was fired Monday for verbally threatening a problem student. Starnes admitted the transgression and said he accepted the consequences of his actions. The Brownsburg School Board terminated his teaching contract at the recommendation of Superintendent Jim Snapp. Students and parents who attended the meeting were not permitted to address the board.
