A high school art teacher who allegedly posted Facebook comments condoning sexual relations between teachers and students has been put on paid leave.
Teacher Sean Kane works at the same school -- South Hills High in West Covina -- where two female educators were arrested on suspicion of having sex with students.
Kane's profile may have been taken down on the social media site; a recent search of Facebook did not turn up a profile for the teacher. But a school district official confirmed this wording: Students should have kept their “stupid mouths shut and enjoyed it.”
Kane was working up until Wednesday. But when the district became aware of the post, they put him on paid administrative leave so they could investigate, said Michelle Van Der Linden, spokeswoman for the Covina Valley Unified School District.
