Teachers use "N" word, profanity, and talk student sex in text messages

ASHFORD, Ala. (WTVY) -- Several Ashford High School teachers could be in trouble for comments they made.

Those teachers, assuming the posts are authentic, used the “N” word, and speculated about their students’ sex life in a series of group text messages.

Houston County Superintendent David Sewell is aware of the situation and is consulting with several attorneys before addressing the matter in detail.

It appears the text messages were made public by a student who had gained access to a teacher’s cellphone, made a video recording of the chat thread, and then posted it on Facebook.

While several messages appear to be inappropriate, one seems to be most insensitive. “That ["N" word] is so slow he can’t walk and chew gum,” the post states.

In other posts, the teachers discuss the sex lives of students, including the inability of one pupil to control his sex life.

The posts may have violated Houston County School System’s policy, even though the teachers believed those messages would never become public.
