Amber Parker is a Texas teacher who is fired for discussing pedophiles in the classroom.

She was a teacher at Franklin High School in El Paso, Texas. According to NBC News, she teaches English there.

A video in which she talks about pedophiles went viral.

Here’s what you need to know:

According to the El Paso Times, Parker was “recorded by a student during a class allegedly telling students to label pedophiles as ‘persons attracted to minors,’ adding, ‘So don’t judge people for being with.’ 5 year olds want to have sex with them.’”

KBox14 reported their full comment as follows:

A student who was in the class spoke to the TV station. “[The teacher] expressed like it was ridiculous, like [society] may not be able to label people as pedophiles. That [society] will probably have to start calling them MAPs because it can be offensive to them [pedophiles]. The class agreed,” Ryann Ruvalcaba, a junior at Franklin High School, told the broadcaster.

According to the El Paso Times, the El Paso Independent School District Board of Trustees voted to fire Parker.

The newspaper reached Parker, who replied, “I’m not allowed to comment at this time.”

School board member Daniel Call wrote on Facebook:

However, Call later said he voted to fire the teacher after being briefed on the findings of the inquiry, which was held in a closed session.

Another person wrote in Call’s comments thread: “I saw the video. Wow! Another reason I pulled my kids out 12 years ago and started our homeschooling journey.”

One writer defended Parker in a post on the Let the School Bells Ring Facebook group.

“The post shared here via teacher’s comments has been deleted,” she wrote.

“Several parents have come to me insisting that this was part of a debate and that she has made it clear that she does not condone pedophilia and in fact despises offenders. I am told that she made her stance clear in this discussion. That being said, pedophilia is indefensible and should not be discussed in our classrooms. I hope the school/district can get to the bottom of the truth.”

Parker’s husband, Jason Parker, wrote a comment defending her on Call’s Facebook page, although it is no longer visible.

He wrote that she was an “innocent woman,” he said, according to KFOX-TV.

He wrote:

According to the Daily Mail, Parker is a “married mother of five” and a grandmother of two.

In another controversy in 2021, Allyn Walker, a lecturer at Old Dominion University, resigned after describing pedophiles in a book as “attracted to minors,” Newsweek reported.
