Middle school teacher arrested for letting kids have sex in classroom

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- A teacher was fired from his job and charged with a crime after he was accused of allowing students to have sex in a classroom closet.

A parent discovered text messages between her 14-year-old son and middle school math teacher Quinton Wright.

"I was in a state of disbelief when I read all these messages," the parent, who asked to remain anonymous, told WSBTV. "Basically he's allowing the students to have sex in a storage room in his classroom."

The texts, according to the mother, indicated her son could have sex in the classroom from 7:30 to 8:30. In one text, the teacher asked the teenager if he told the girl what was going to happen and that she could not tell anyone. Another text indicated the teacher did not have condoms to provide.

"It's very sickening and disheartening because we trust administrators and educators when we drop our kids off at school," the mother said.

The mother pulled her 8th grader from school on Friday and then filed a complaint. The DeKalb School System later removed the 25-year-old teacher from the classroom.

A judge later issued a warrant for Wright's arrest on four misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

    I don’t believe this teacher was right at all. I believe teachers SHOUKD NOT BE teachers until they r middle aged . At least for 7th thru 12th grades. Just my opinion of course. Yes there has bern middle agers who molest their students. However, when you put a 22 year old teacher with raging hormones in a classroom with 15 and 16 year old hot babes/guys, …this gramma thinks your Def asking for troubke. It’s only common sense.
    …However, in addition, we better start issuing warrants for the parents who let this go on in their own homes. Happens everyday. How do we decifer when and if it’s ok? Very gray area depending who ur talking to.

      If you’re going to comment on something. At least make it readable, with proper English. Also isn’t it a little cliche for you to be calling teenage boys and girls “hot babes/guys”. I do agree what he did was obsurd and should never have happened. But shame on you for bashing aspiring teachers.

        The word is “Absurd” not obsurd…and your grammar is lacking, so why do you criticize others for it? She has a valid point.
