Cory Hunter (pictured left above), is the teacher who told a 16-year-old female student that, “her only purpose in life” was to “have sex and have babies” resigned after the story hit the fan.
Hunter resigned from his position as a teacher in the Greene County, GA. Public School System during a heated school board meeting on Monday.
School Superintendent Chris Houston said Hunter apologized for any “disruption” caused by his behavior.
Hunter reportedly said, “I’m sorry. I quit.”
Shaniaya Hunter (no relation to her teacher), a junior at Greene County High School, has an eye condition which caused her to miss a number of days from class.
After a few unexcused absences, Shaniaya asked Hunter (who is not related to her), if she could take a makeup test. But Hunter allegedly said, “I have been around for 37 years and clearly, you are the dumbest girl that I have ever met.”
He added: “You know what your purpose is going to be? To have sex and have children, because you ain’t gonna never be smart.”
Shaniaya told ABC News affiliate WSB-TV that Hunter was known for insulting other students in his class. So she recorded his outburst on her iPad.
“It really hurt me inside,” Hunter said.
Her teacher should have resigned, he saved the school board the trouble of dismissing him for such cruel, degrading and incentive remarks.
