LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz says the decision by a Catholic school to request a teacher stay away from school after a mission trip to Africa was “not the right judgment.”

The school, St. Margaret Mary in eastern Louisville, had placed Susan Sherman on a 21-day leave of absence after her return from Kenya, according to her husband, Paul Sherman. Kenya is far removed from the Ebola epidemic in western Africa.

Susan Sherman resigned her teaching job last week.

Kurtz said Thursday the school “made some very prudent judgments in the midst of an awful lot of confusion at the time.” He says he would be open to Sherman returning to teach at the school. Kurtz says he regrets any pain that has been caused to the Sherman family.
