Atlanta Teacher Becomes Accomplice in Minor Delinquency
In a rather shocking incident that surfaced on Tuesday, a math teacher at a school in Atlanta, has been accused of letting middle school students to have sex in his classroom’s closet.
25-year-old Quentin Wright, a math teacher and coach at the Champion Theme Middle School in Stone Mountain, allegedly allowed his students to take turns and have sex in the storage unit in his classroom.
The sickening incident came to light when the mother of a fourteen-year-old found on her son’s phone, text messages exchanged between him and Wright, last Thursday. The parent, who wished to remain anonymous, expressed her shock and disgust when she quoted the messages, which read, “You can have it from 7:30 to like 8:30. 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”.
She said there was another message saying that he did not have condoms. The teacher had even sent a calendar showing teachers’ schedules.
On Friday, the mother pulled out her ward from the school, along with filing a complaint with the police and informing the school principal, of the teacher’s misdemeanor.
Following the complaint, the Dekalb School System removed the 25-year-old teacher from the classroom.
A judge issued an arrest warrant, which said that Wright fixed times with students when the classroom would be empty and gave them condoms. The warrant came out on Monday and Wright was taken into custody on Tuesday. However, he is not behind the bars as of now, as the quantum of punishment is yet to be decided.
It is indeed appalling to hear of such misconduct coming from a teacher. The parents, when they drop their kids to school, entrust the school authorities, particularly the teachers, their child’s future. Such incidents shake the very foundation of the revered student-teacher bond.
