MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker wants a middle school teacher who viewed pornography on his classroom computer to lose his license.

Walker on Tuesday sent a letter to state Superintendent Tony Evers saying he should act quickly to begin license revocation proceedings against Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District teacher Andrew Harris.

The school board voted to fire Harris in 2010 after he and other teachers looked at sexually explicit images at school. But an arbitrator ruled in 2012 that Harris had been unfairly terminated and after the state Supreme Court refused to take up the case, Harris returned to the classroom Monday.

Neither Harris's attorney nor a spokesman for Evers immediately returned messages seeking reaction to Walker's letter.
