WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Board of Education has reinstated the license of a Wichita teacher who was accused of failing to promptly report the suspected abuse of a child.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/IGfw8X ) reports the board voted unanimously Tuesday to withdraw the license revocation for 51-year-old Donna Ford. Ford had surrendered her teaching license last month.

Ford had been a teacher for 17 years, most recently at Cleaveland Elementary School in Wichita. She said in a letter to the board last month that her resignation resulted from allegations that she delayed reporting alleged sexual abuse for two weeks.

Ford wrote that she surrendered her license as a condition of her resignation with early-retirement benefits.

Ford's attorney, Ron Lyon, says his client decided she would be better off working until retirement age.
