Georgia High School Teacher Arrested for Putting 'Hit' on Student After Asking Teen if He Was Gay: Police have arrested Randolph Forde, a teacher at Mundy's Mill High School in Jonesboro, Georgia for allegedly putting a "hit" on a student after an incident in which he asked the student if he was gay.


  1. This one definitely bears watching. Seems the teacher did admit to the part about questioning the student's sexuality which is incredibly unprofessional for that setting and deserving of appropriate punishment and - at the very least - retraining and monitoring. Especially if the teacher's focus is on special education.

    The "hit" part looks a bit murky at the moment. This is one of those cases where I really, really hope the student is making something up and that, in any event, the investigation will be thorough...

  2. I'm thinking the same thing. It's never appropriate to assume someone is lying, but I really think there is more to the story. I truly hope that this teacher isn't completely stupid (unprofessional and allegedly hateful characteristics aside) enough to ask one of his STUDENTS to KILL another STUDENT. I just feel as if it's too conveniently tactless...
