Teacher accused of calling girl ‘dumbest student' resigns

GREENE COUNTY, Ga. — School officials say a Georgia teacher has resigned after a high school student said she recorded him calling her "the dumbest girl I have ever met."

Greene County School System Superintendent Chris Houston said that teacher Cory Hunter resigned at a school board meeting Monday night. Houston said the teacher apologized for any "disruption" caused by the ordeal.

The 16-year-old junior, Shaniaya Hunter, who is not related to the teacher, said she was trying to catch up before a test in December and asked the teacher a question.

She said Hunter replied, "I have been around for 37 years and clearly you are the dumbest girl I have ever met." She said he added that her purpose in life will be to have sex and have babies.

Shaniaya Hunter was recording the lesson on a school-issued iPad.
