CONWAY SPRINGS, Kan. (AP) - A Conway Springs teacher at the center of a controversy over showing an anti-bullying video says he has changed his mind and has decided not to resign.

The Wichita Eagles reports (https://bit.ly/1WB30CR ) that Tom Leahy’s decision to return to the classroom could force a school board vote on whether or not he can continue teaching.

Leahy and Superintendent Clay Murphy were scheduled to address the community at a joint news conference Thursday. Murphy said the event was cancelled shortly after noon at Leahy’s request.

The social studies teacher has been on leave since Oct. 21. He was asked to resign after showing eighth-grade history students “Love Is All You Need,” a short film depicting a fictional world in which heterosexual children are bullied by homosexual children.

Leahy plans to address the school board Monday.
