A Georgia teacher is now out of a job and facing charges after being accused of allowing students to have sex in his classroom’s closet.
A parent says she has proof the sexual escapades took place with the teacher’s knowledge.
Tom Regan talked to the outraged mother.
“I was in a state of disbelief when I read all these messages,” the anonymous parent said.
The mother said she looked her 14-year-old son’s phone and discovered a shocking exchange of text messages last Thursday between him and Quinton Wright, a math teacher and coach at Champion Theme Middle School in Stone Mountain.
“Basically he’s allowing the students to have sex in a storage room in his classroom,” the parent said.
She read a couple of the texts she says were exchanged between the teacher and her son.
“He told my son you can have it from seven thirty to like eight thirty. Did you tell the girl what’ s going to happen, that she cannot tell anybody, basically don’t tell anyone I’m allowing you to use my room.”
The mother said the teacher also sent her son a calendar showing the teachers’ schedules. A revealing text that showed the student did not have condoms was also exchanged.
“It’s very sickening and disheartening, because we trust administrators and educators when we drop our kids off at school.”
The mother pulled her eighth grader from school Friday and contacted the principal and police to file a complaint.
The DeKalb School System removed the 25-year-old teacher from the classroom. The student’s mother told me she was suspicious of him from earlier behavior.
“He called me when the kids had their eighth grade prom and asked if he could come over and take pictures with the boys before the prom, and I said no.”
A judge issued an arrest warrant for the teacher, Wright, on Monday. There’s no word yet on what specific charges Wright will face.
