Teacher to be Charged for Threatening Gay Student


A Georgia teacher arrested in October on charges of threatening a 16-year-old student for his perceived sexuality is scheduled to attend an employment hearing Tuesday on possible disciplinary action.

According to the student's attorney, Terance Madden, Randolph Forde pulled the student out of an algebra class at Mundy's Mill High School and asked him if he was gay.

Afterward, Forde allegedly asked another student to "put a hit" on the teenager, said Madden, reports The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

According to a police report, "the suspect advised to the witness that he would pay him to kill the victim."

The teacher wrote the prospective victim's name on a note and showed it to another student on the school bus, the report says.

Forde, who was released on $10,000 bond, remains on administrative leave with pay, school spokesman Charles White said Monday.

"We have received a report that allegations were lodged against the teacher by the student's parent," White said.
