The man who works as a fourth grade music and arts teacher at P.S. 256 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, was arrested at the school circa 12:30 p.m. reports the nypost after a police investigation into our collective hero’s allegedly after-school activities.
As a city employee, Grant earns over $60,000 a year working for the 327 student elementary school, which serves Pre-K through sixth grade.
A police source told the victim is a 16-year-old boy, who does not happen to be a student at P.S. 256.
Since the man’s arrest, Waris Grant has been charged with promoting prostitution, criminal sex act, and acting in a manner injurious to a child.
He has been working at the elementary school for over four years, according to the Department of Education website.
Since Grant’s arrest The Department of Education told that the errant teacher has been removed from the classroom,
Offered a spokesperson: ‘While the allegations against Mr. Grant are not school-related, they are deeply disturbing. DOE took swift action to immediately remove him from the classroom, and he will remain away from students.’
At present it is not immediately clear when Grant paid the teen for oral sex or why for that matter what may have inspired him.
Cops did not release the victim’s name due to the nature of Grant’s charges.
And then there were these comments on the web that caught my eye:

Wow my old school. How disgusting. What is this world coming to.
My sister went to that school. They certainly don’t need anymore bad publicity, especially after the Nixmary Brown case. Shameful!!!
