Texas Teacher Commits Suicide And 4 Others Resign Over Student Sex Scandal
A teacher at a west Texas high school took his own life a day after he resigned from his job amid allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a student.
Mark Lampman, 47, a veteran government teacher and assistant girls golf coach, was found dead Wednesday afternoon, Ector County Independent School District Officer Mike Adkins confirmed.
Earlier that day he became the fifth teacher in under a year to resign under suspicion of having a sexual relationship with a student, authorities said.
“Yesterday we were informed that his family was worried about him,” Adkins told the Daily News Thursday. “We were notified later by the sheriff’s office that they had found him.”
It appears that Lampman, who spent 17 years with the school, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Permian High School is embroiled in scandal stemming from the high incidence of alleged teacher-student relationships.
What the hell is going on with these freaky, pervert, slore-bucket azz teachers?!?
“If we had a reasonable explanation we would be working to fix that specifically are right now. I wish I could offer you an explanation, and I wish I could offer the community an explanation.” Adkins said to The News. “We provide recurring training for all employees. Obviously we need to do more.”
Oh, all they need is “training”? Is THAT what is going to keep them from slurpin’ down 16-year-olds?!?
The officer added that — in his personal opinion — these sorts of distressing relationships have gone on in high schools for years. But fewer people brought them up.
“I hope we are turning a corner where it is being reported and people aren’t turning a blind eye,” he said.
The nearly 2,300-student school, whose football team was the basis of the 1990 book “Friday Night Lights” and a subsequent movie and TV show with the same name, had another teacher resign in 2010 over similar allegations but the man was later acquitted at trial.
What ever happened to the days when teachers were sweaty, old, fat men who hadn’t seen their penis in over a decade, and dried out wrinkly women who have already gone through menopause? Maybe we need to find more of them…
