Student records Jefferson Davis H.S. teacher's rant

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The mother of a Montgomery high school student says she's angry and heartbroken about the way a teacher treated her son at school. She says her son's math teacher not only gave her son an unfair grade, but also publicly berated him in front of a classroom of other students.

12 News Defenders investigated the claims and went to school administrators for answers.

Bailey's son is a junior and straight A, honor student at Jefferson Davis High School, but Bailey says her son recently got a grade well below his standards – a 23 out of 100.

Bailey says her son tried several times to ask about the grade, but his math teacher, Dalsity Pinkston, wouldn't answer his questions. In fact, Bailey says the principal told her Pinkston admitted to simply making up the grade.

"The principal stated that she just put a grade in, which is unethical and at the same time it was a 23, so she's not there to help a student, why hurt one," Bailey said.

The story doesn't end there. Bailey says her son walked up to Pinkston's classroom on Tuesday and heard the teacher making hateful comments about him in front of fellow students. Bailey's son recorded it with his cell phone.

On the recording, you can hear the teacher say "he's a f***** a** boy. Ask him. I'll tell her in the conference."

The recording is full of racial and gender slanders. At one point you can hear "Kalin such a b**** a** ni****."

Pinkston also threatens violence: "I'm so ready cause I'm gonna smash her g** a** son in the face. F***** lies."

Bailey says after the principal heard the recording, he promised the teacher would be placed on administrative leave, but according to Bailey, she was back in school Wednesday.

We heard from officials at the Montgomery Public School System. They said Pinkston will not be teaching at any MPS school next year because the board chose not to renew her contract.

Bailey says she feels good about the decision.

WSFA 12 News did try contacting Pinkston and our efforts have been unsuccessful.

We've also learned that failing grade of 23 didn't affect the student's final grade. He was still able to earn an overall A in the class.
