An Atlanta-area teacher identified as Quentin Wright, a mathematics teacher at The Champion School in Stone Mountain has been arrested following a parent complaint that he allowed middle school students to have sex in a storage unit in his classroom.
The 25-year-old teacher has been charged with four misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
An arrest warrant says Wright arranged times with students when the classroom would be empty and gave them condoms.
The investigation began after a mother said she found text messages between Wright and her son.
“I was in a state of disbelief when I read all these messages,” the mother said, asking to remain anonymous.
The mother said she looked at 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 of his classroom,” the mother said.
“He told my son you can have it from 7:30 to like 8:30,” the mother said reading some of the messages. “’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.
“It’s very sickening and disheartening, because we trust administrators and educators when we drop our kids off at school,” the mother said.
A DeKalb County Schools spokesman says they are co-operating with the District Attorney’s Office and Wright has been removed from the classroom.
