The Atlanta school district wants to remove a sixth grade teacher for playing Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” in class, but that’s the least of her alleged failings.

“This song is not [in] alignment with Teacher Keys Standard 9, Professionalism,” read a a district document outlining the charges against the teacher, Nikki Turner. “This song contained profanity, vulgarity, and sexually explicit lyrics.”

Well, if you think letting students listen to a song about Beyonce and Jay Z’s sex life isn’t a big deal, check out the other charges against Taylor, courtesy of the AJC:

Atlanta Public Schools officials cited dozens of reasons they sought not to renew her contract. They include failing to present material clearly, demonstrate knowledge of the sixth-grade math concepts and student needs, provide feedback to students during class, and properly plan lessons.

Turner taught at Coan Middle School. Her lawyer, Ann Brumbaugh, declined to comment on the allegations but said Turner was “a dedicated, passionate teacher.” Turner is not currently working for the Atlanta schools, Brumbaugh said.

The Atlanta school district has also recently sought to remove a teacher who the district said was late to school more than 124 times last year and a teacher who, among other allegations, was accused of telling students that magnets repel and attract because they have metal in them. Read more.
