A Georgia teacher who called a high school student “the dumbest girl I have ever met” resigned on Monday night, the NY Daily News reports.
Cory Hunter apologized for any “disruption” he caused and announced at a school board meeting in Greesboro that he was stepping down.
“He will not be returning to the classroom,” Greene County School System Superintendent Chris Houstontold the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “In submitting his resignation, he verbally expressed his apologies to his students and fellow staff members for any disruption caused to the school by the controversy over the last several weeks.”
Greene County High School student Shaniaya Hunter, 16 who is not related to the teacher, had been recording the instructor when the harsh comments were made.
“I have been around for 37 years and clearly you are the dumbest girl I have ever met,” the teacher can be heard saying after Shaniaya asked a question.
Cory Hunter also said the student’s purpose in life will be to have sex and have babies.
