Judson I.S.D. says a teacher will lose her job after ordering more than 20 kindergartners to line up and hit a classmate accused of being a bully. The teacher is accused of orchestrating the slugfest after a younger teaching colleague went to her last month seeking suggestions on how to discipline the 6-year-old. A police report says the teacher allegedly placed the boy before other kindergartners and told them, "Hit him!" and "Hit him harder!" The boy's mother filed an official oppression complaint with police against the teachers. Both are on paid administrative leave, but a district spokesman says the one who arranged the punishment won't be brought back. Prosecutors are reviewing whether charges will be filed.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Houston's Astrodome stadium, New York's old Pan Am Worldport Terminal at Kennedy Airport and Montana's one-room schoolhouses are joining a list of the nation's most endangered historic places.
On Wednesday, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is releasing its listing of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. It includes sites from Maine to Alaska.
The Astrodome was the world's first domed, air-conditioned stadium and was once called the "eighth wonder of the world." On Wednesday, a county board recommended converting the Astrodome into a giant convention center and exhibition space.
At New York's JFK Airport, the flying-saucer-shaped Worldport Terminal helped usher in the jet age in 1960 but has been vacated by Delta Air Lines and faces demolition.
A look at these two places, plus all the others on the list, through photos:
