Teens having sex in classroom closet, teacher arrested

A GEORGIA middle school has fired a teacher accused of allowing students to have sex in a classroom.

Quentin Wright, 25, a DeKalb County middle school teacher, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon and charged with four misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, WSB-TV reported.

The investigation began when a mother of one student found texts between Mr Wright and her 14-year-old son.

"He told my son you can have [the classroom] from 7:30 to like 8:30," said the mother of one student, who requested anonymity. "'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 teachers' schedules and a text saying he did not have condoms.

Mr Wright was fired from both of his positions as a math teacher and sports coach at Stone Mountain, Georgia's Champion Theme Middle School.

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

The mother also said that she pulled her eighth-grader from school and had been previously suspicious of Mr Wright.

"He called me when the kids are at their eighth-grade prom and asked if he could come over and take pictures with the boys before the prom, and I said no," she said.
