Published Aug 22, 2014Evidently Beyoncé isn't on the Atlanta school curriculum, since a grade six teacher may be out of a job after playing the Jay Z-featuring track "Drunk in Love" to her class.
According to an article in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution [via Billboard], this song is one of the reasons that the Atlanta school district is attempting to oust teacher Nikki Turner.
"This song contained profanity, vulgarity, and sexually explicit lyrics," read a distinct document. "This song is not [in] alignment with Teacher Keys Standard 9, Professionalism."
The lyrics in question include lines like, "Last thing I remember is our beautiful bodies grinding up in the club," and "Can't keep your eyes off my fatty." And let's not forget Hova's infamous rap, with lines like, "Slid the panties right to the side," and, of course, "We sex again in the morning/ Your breasteses is my breakfast." The song comes with an explicit lyrics warning on iTunes.
The teacher previously taught at Coan Middle School, but she is currently not working for the Atlanta school district. The song isn't the reason the district chose not to renew her contract, since her job performance apparently had numerous shortcomings. Evidently, she's fighting the decision, since The Atlanta Journal-Constitution includes a quote from her lawyer.
On the bright side, at least it seems that the teacher didn't show her class the steamy music video. Watch that below.
