An Edgewood high school teacher resigns after admitting to taking students to a Dayton gay bar where the teenagers got their hands on alcohol.Story goes on to indicate that Epperson got permission from all the parents, but the girls got ahold of alcohol after they had walked away. Out of curiosity, I wonder why they decided to do this at all. Surely the teacher was aware of the PR fiasco this would cause, though I applaud the action in theory. (There was a teacher at MU who made his students go to a drag show to talk about gender performance... but that's an older crowd.)
Lori Epperson submitted a letter of resignation Thursday. She also sent an email to her supervisor and the school principal in which she admits to taking four female students to a club called Masque.
Sources tell 9News that Epperson's 18-year-old daughter was among the teens.
School officials launched an investigation after learning about the incident. They describe it as "inappropriate" conduct for a teacher.
...unfortunately for Masque, one of the girls was 17, which is a real problem, as the school district is considering pursuing legal action.
