DeKalb County, GA Middle School Teacher Quinton Wright Arrested For Allowing Students to have Sex in his Classroom Closet

READING, WRITING AND SEX IN THE CLOSETS …

DeKalb County, GA middle school teacher Quinton Wright has been arrested for allowing students to have sex in his classroom closet. The 25 year old teacher and coach in Stone Mountain has been charged with with four misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Misdemeanor, really? According to accounts, the mother looked at her 14 year-old son’s phone and discovered shocking text messages between her son and Quinton Wright, a math teacher and coach at Champion Theme Middle School in Stone Mountain. The arrest warrant says Wright arranged times with students when the classroom would be empty and gave them condoms. The DeKalb County school system removed the 25 year old teacher from the classroom.

It is UNREAL that this is what gets hired to teach today’s children.

A DeKalb County middle school teacher and coach has been arrested after a mother claims he allowed students to have sex in his classroom closet.

Quinton Wright was arrested Tuesday afternoon and has been charged with four misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Channel 2’s Tom Regan spoke with the parent Monday, who said she couldn’t believe what was happening.

“I was in a state of disbelief when I read all these messages,” the mother said, asking to remain anonymous.

The mother told Regan 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.

University of Virginia Dean Sues Rolling Stone Magazine for ‘False’ Portrayal & Defamation Lawsuit in Retracted Rape Story

YOU KNEW THIS ONE WAS COMING, ALSO THE FRAT WILL MOST LIKELY DO THE SAME …

UVA to sue Rolling Stone magazine for defamation. I am generally not a law-suit happy individual; however, this one was a no-brainer. Following the completely irresponsible reporting by Rolling Stone, A Rape on Campus, and the subsequent retracting of the story and apology after the story fell apart, University of Virginia associate dean of students filed a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit against Rolling Stone magazine Tuesday. GOOD!!! With what Rolling Stone did, might just be the poster-child of cases for defamation.

Rolling Stone reported, A Rape on Ca,pus, What went wrong. Many people have been asking since the magazine retracted their story, Rolling Stone journalism … what went wrong?

Rolling Stone Hoax

A University of Virginia associate dean of students filed a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit against Rolling Stone magazine Tuesday, alleging that it portrayed her as callous and indifferent to allegations of sexual assault on campus and made her the university’s “chief villain” in a now-debunked article about a fraternity gang rape.

Nicole Eramo is seeking more than $7.5 million in damages from Rolling Stone; its parent company, Wenner Media; and Sabrina Rubin Erdely, the investigative journalist who wrote the explosive account of sexual assault on the campus in Charlottesville. The magazine retracted the article after news organizations and the Columbia University journalism school found serious flaws in it.

Eramo, who is the university’s chief administrator dealing with sexual assaults, argues in the lawsuit that the article destroyed her credibility, permanently damaged her reputation and caused her emotional distress. She assailed the account as containing numerous falsehoods that the magazine could have avoided if it had worked to verify the story of its main subject, a student named Jackie who alleged she was gang-raped in 2012 and that the university mishandled her case.

23 Year Old Penn State Student Jon Steindorf Missing Since 5/8/15 in State College, PA (Update: Lied to Parents about Graduation & Attending Classes)(Update: Found Safe)

23 year old Penn State student Jon Steindorf has been missing since Friday, May 8, 2015 in State College, Pennsylvania. According to reports, the PSU student vanished just before his graduation. Stendort was last seen by his roommate at 11:30 a.m. on Friday. Steindorf was reported missing when he did not meet his family to go to his Penn State graduation Friday at around 4 p.m. at his Pugh Street apartment. He did not return any of his family’s phone calls or messages.

Jon Steindorf

Missing – Jon Steindorf

Steindorf was reported missing when he did not meet his family to go to his Penn State graduation Friday at around 4 p.m.

Police describe Steindorf as a 23-year-old white male, 5’10” tall, 170 lbs with  brown hair and blue eyes. He may have his black Specialized bicycle with him and a red backpack.

He left his apartment on Pugh Street without any form of identification, credit/debit cards, keys, phone, and potentially money, according to a social media post circulating among Steindorf’s family and friends.

UPDATE I: Police search for missing Penn State student.

“The police have gone through his apartment, talked to his roommate and took his phone for forensic analysis,” the woman said. “We’ve been in contact with all his friends, everybody they know, and really are just at a loss as to his whereabouts.”

A friend told the publication she’s checking his usual haunts. She hasn’t found him.

Joanne Steindorf said her son always let friends and family know his whereabouts.

UPDATE II:  Parents thought missing man was graduating from Penn State.

It would appear that this kid was not being honest about graduating from college or even attending classes. I am not sure how long this missing student thought he could continue this charade; however, it is nothing to do anything extreme over. Is it an embarrassment, yes. But your parents just want you back safe and sound.

The parents of a missing 23-year-old State High graduate thought they’d be attending his graduation from Penn State this weekend.

As it turned out, Jon Steindorf had not enrolled last fall and had mysteriously vanished on Friday.

Steindorf was reported missing by his family Friday evening, a few hours after they went to his Pugh Street apartment at 4 p.m. to pick him up for Penn State commencement exercises.

His father, Paul Steindorf, said Sunday that he learned his son was not set to graduate this weekend, although Jon Steindorf told his parents that he wrapped up studies in the fall semester and delayed graduation until this spring.

“We thought he’d graduate, and that was our understanding that he completed fall classes and he delayed graduation until now, but the most recent information we received was he was not on the list to graduate,” Paul Steindorf said. “Apparently he wasn’t enrolled this fall.”

UPDATE III: Missing Penn State student lied to parents about graduation.

Jon Steindorf’s parents thought they were coming to State College to pick up their son after this weekend’s graduation from Penn State University. But as graduation approached, they learned that not only wasn’t their son graduating; he hasn’t been enrolled in Penn State since the fall.

And now, Jon Steindorf, 23, is missing.

WTAJ reports that State College Police are now looking for a missing Penn State student. His parents last spoke with Jon Steindorf Thursday.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact State College police at 814-234-7150.

UPDATE IV: Missing Penn State student found Safe.

A Penn State student reported missing by his parents last week has been found, and is safe and unharmed, State College police said Monday afternoon.

State College Police Department Media Release: The missing person has been located, is safe and unharmed.

Failing Our Future: Only 18% of 8th Graders Proficient in US History

READING, WRITING AND INDOCTRINATION … , HOW CAN SO MANY OF OUR YOUTH BE SO PATHETICALLY UNEDUCATED IN AMERICA’S HISTORY?

How is it possible that 8th graders could know so little about United States history? According to the Nation’s Report Card released by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), only 18% of 8th graders are proficient in US History. UNREAL. Think about that, a pathetic 18%. Oh, but wait, 23% were proficient in civics, otherwise known as social studies, in day’s past. Not only is that embarrassing for our public schools, it should also be considered criminal. What exactly are our schools teaching children? That’s right, schools don’t educate anymore, they indoctrinate. And of course sadly, that what today’s liberal educators are teaching the children today of US history is a “Hate America first” agenda.

Education_Indoctrination

Results of the “Nation’s Report Card” released this week by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) show that only 18 percent of 8th-graders are “proficient” or above in U.S. history, and only 23 percent are proficient in civics.

Despite hundreds of billions of dollars poured into education programs in the United States via the U.S. Department of Education, the “Nation’s Report Card” states that 8th-graders’ average NAEP scores in U.S. History, Geography, and Civics demonstrated no significant change since 2010 when students were last assessed. In geography, just 27 percent of U.S. 8th-graders performed at or above the proficiency level on the NAEP assessments.

Among white, black, Hispanic, and Asian students, Asians scored highest, with 33 percent proficient in U.S. History, 44 percent in geography, and 40 percent in Civics. White students are at 26 percent proficiency level in U.S. History, 39 percent in geography, and 32 percent in civics. Only 6 percent of black students scored at the proficient level in U.S. History, 7 percent in geography, and 9 percent in civics, while Hispanics were at 8 percent, 11 percent, and 12 percent, respectively.

A breakdown between students who attend public versus private schools finds that only 17 percent of 8th-graders who attend public school reached the proficiency level in U.S. History, 25 percent in geography, and 22 percent in civics, while 31 percent of those students assessed who attend private schools were proficient at U.S. History, 44 percent at geography, and 38 percent at civics.

From Rush Limbaugh:

“Despite hundreds of billions of dollars poured into education programs in the United States via the US Department of Education, the ‘Nation’s Report Card’ states that 8th-graders’ average NAEP scores in US History, Geography, and Civics demonstrated no significant change since 2010 when students were last assessed.” Just think of all the money that Obama and the Democrat Party have poured into the teachers… (Ahem!) I was gonna say teachers union; I mean education.

The stimulus bill alone sent the teachers unions untold billions of dollars.  It was disguised money.  They were telling us it was going to education, to rebuild schools and roads and bridges.  But we now know, looking back, that the vast majority of the money went to teachers unions, part of the Democrat Party’s very well-constructed money-laundering scheme using the unions to do so.  (interruption) What? How’s that work?  It’s very simple.

Florida Police Investigate Whether Kiss Exchanged By 7 Year Old Classmates Was “Unnatural And Lascivious”

ARE YOU KIDDING ME … I HOPE THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS HAS RUN OUT BETWEEN MY KISS WITH HEIDI UNDER THE PIANO IN 3RD GRADE …

Has this country lost it’s collective ever-loving mind? As reported at The Smoking Gun, the Florida police actually investigated a kiss, OMG on the lips, between two 7 year old elementary school classmates. Get this, the police were trying to determine whether the act amounted to “lewd and lascivious” behavior. Head shaking, simply head shaking. What happened to the country I grew up in when a Johnny kissed Susie was simply Johnny kissing Susie? The idea that anyone would think that two 7 year old’s kissing was a “lewd and lascivious” act needs their heads and dirty minds examined.

Maybe the police would like to focus their efforts on investigations of lewd acts when an adult perpetrates it on a child or there is at least some kind of evil or criminal intent, not a simple kiss between children.

WHTTC

Florida police last week investigated whether a kiss exchanged by seven-year-old elementary students amounted to “lewd and lascivious” behavior, according to an incident report.

Responding to “allegations” that the children kissed “on the lips” during class last Tuesday, a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to the school to investigate, according to the report, which includes a charge description as “unnatural and lascivious.”

The report, which contains redactions, does not indicate the source of the kissing “allegations.”

Deputy April Culbreath reported speaking with a teacher who “witnessed the incident.” Thereafter, Culbreath concluded that there was “no indication that there was anything sexual about this incident” and no evidence that Florida state law had been violated.

Sorry, but are you telling me that if it was two 11 or 12 year old’s it would be considered “unnatural and lascivious.”
