The Atlanta public school district fired the coolest teacher alive this week after she played Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” to her class of sixth graders, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports.
Atlanta Public School said the song Nikki Tuner played was “not [in] alignment with Teacher Keys Standard 9, Professionalism.” A document outlining the charges against Turner said the “song contained profanity, vulgarity, and sexually explicit lyrics.”
What? Beyonce? Vulgar? Sexually explicit?

I get filthy when that liquor get into me
I’ve been thinking, I’ve been thinking
Why can’t I keep my fingers off it, baby?
I want you, na na
Though Turner’s lawyer called her a “passionate, dedicated” teacher, the school district said she also failed “demonstrate knowledge of sixth-grade math concepts,” which is minimally important. (RELATED: Alleged Groper Bites Off Finger At Beyonce Concert)
