Clayton County schools are investigating charges a teacher threatened a student after questioning the teen’s sexuality.
Randolph Forde, a teacher at Mundy’s Mill High School, remains on administrative leave with pay, schools spokesman Charles White said Monday.
According to the student’s attorney, Forde pulled the 16-year-old student out of class and asked him if he was gay.
“A child’s sexuality is never a teacher’s business,” said Marcia Killebrew, the student’s mother. “I feel like the man was being extremely inappropriate.”
The next day, the teacher got into a verbal altercation in an algebra class, said Madden.
“The teacher threatened to hit him in his ‘f-ing mouth,’” Madden said.
A few days later, Forde asked another student to “put a hit” on the teenager, according to a police report.
“The suspect advised to the witness that he would pay him to kill the victim,” the report states.
The teacher wrote the victim’s name on a note and showed it to another student on the school bus, the report says.
