Story highlights

(CNN)An Atlanta-area teacher was arrested after a parent accused him of letting middle-school students have sex in his classroom.

Quinton Wright is charged with four misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office said. He was booked into jail Tuesday and released after posting bond.
The mother who made the complaint said she discovered a disturbing text message on her 14-year-old son's phone.
    "Basically he's allowing the students to have sex in a storage room of his classroom," the mother told CNN affiliate WSB.
    "He told my son, 'You can have it from 7:30 to like 8:30,' " the mother said, reading some of the messages. " 'Did you tell the girl what's going to happen? That she cannot tell anybody?' -- basically don't tell anyone I'm allowing you to use my room."
    Wright, 25, taught math and science at Champion Theme Middle School in Stone Mountain, Georgia. He also coached basketball at the school.
    The school district said he was removed from the school.
    Even before discovering the text messages, the mother said she was suspicious about the teacher.
    "He called me when the kids are at their eighth-grade prom and asked if he could come over and take pictures with the boys before the prom," the mother told WSB. "I said no."
