Teacher to Student: ‘Your Purpose’ Is to Marry ‘And Have Sex and Have Children Because You Ain’t Never Gonna Be Smart’:
Shaniaya Hunter, a junior at Green County High School, says that she had only asked a teacher a question when he became upset and embarrassed her in front of the entire class by calling her “dumb.”
Shaniaya Hunter, a junior at Green County High School, was recording her lessons on her school-issued iPad in December when, she says, she asked the teacher a question and he became upset. She alleges that the teacher called her “dumb” and added that her “purpose was to have sex and children.”
“It really hurt me inside,” Shaniaya told the news station. “I don’t think it’s OK. I don’t think he should be here.”
Shaniaya’s mom, Cathy Wright, reported the incident to the school district but was dissatisfied with the response. She said that she doesn’t know if the teacher was ever disciplined, but added that he still teaches at the school.
Attorney Ben Windham took the case pro bono after learning of the incident.
“This man does not need to be teaching young children. It’s not a gray area. End of story,” Windham said.
WSB-TV contacted Greene County Schools to find out if any action had been taken against the teacher. According to the news station, the school district would respond only by saying that there were limits to what it could say publicly.
Wright assured her sobbing daughter that the fight was not over.
“We’re gonna fight. We’re gonna keep fighting until it’s over,” she said. “It’s not over yet.”
