MADISON -  A high school security guard in Madison got his job back Monday after outrage over his termination spread across the country, prompting school district officials to overturn their decision to fire him for saying the N-word while urging a student not to call him the racial slur. 

Marlon Anderson told supporters Monday his termination from the Madison School District was rescinded, five days after he was fired over the episode that drew outcry from thousands — including the former U.S. secretary of education and superstar Cher.

"I'm back!!" Anderson posted on Facebook. "Now we have to address the policy!! God is good!!!!"
