Teacher Reprimanded After Issuing Inappropriate Algebra Question to Teens


A teacher in Ohio has been heavily criticized by several parents who were concerned about his use of inappropriate examples while teaching.

Two 14-year-old students at Middleburg Heights Junior High School reportedly showed their father a picture of a recent algebra lesson in which the teacher, Daniel Rapp, referenced sexual text messages.

“Tony can send five texts and three nudes in 19 minutes. He could also send three texts and one nude in nine minutes. How long would it take him to send one text and one nude?” the problem read, according to KTVI.

The father of the two teens was understandably angry about the inappropriate reference and brought it to the school’s attention.

Superintendent Michael Sheppard told WJW that after the school district completed an investigation into the matter, Rapp was issued a written reprimand.

“We addressed the teacher and kind of clarified exactly what happened, and in this case provided what we thought was the appropriate consequence, which was clarification that that was inappropriate,” Sheppard said.

While the superintendent called Rapp a “good teacher” who merely “used the inappropriate word,” and thought the consequence was “appropriate,” the concerned father disagreed, saying he believed the discipline was too lenient.

Nevertheless, Rapp has been allowed to continue teaching in the classroom, as the superintendent said he considered the matter over, KTLA reported.

But for the parents of teenagers already incessantly bombarded with the pressure of being sexual at a young age, the matter was probably far from “over.”

Teachers can have a profound impact on our kids’ lives because of the important and constant role they play — a role that is supposed to be positive. Teachers are supposed to help their students learn, grow and make good choices — not encourage or normalize inappropriate sexual behavior.
