Teacher probed after students dance to ‘Talk Dirty’
İZMİROfficials have launched an investigation months after a primary school teacher in western Turkey let her students dance to the song “Talk Dirty,” which features “sexual content,” daily Cumhuriyet reported March 18.
“Talk Dirty” by Jason Derulo and featuring 2 Chainz, was one of the songs played during reading day celebrations in June 2014 at Kenan Gamsız Elementary school in İzmir’s Karşıyaka district, according to the report.
The teacher, identified as Hülya B., received the official notification about the investigation on March 6 in which the top education official of the district informed her that “claims say there was evidence pointing to legally criminal actions.”
“I’m that flight that you get on, international / First class seat on my lap girl, riding comfortable,” the lyrics start.
A local official from a leading teachers’ union criticized the decision. “There is a wrongful intention in trying to find sexual content in this song, given the fact that neither the teacher nor her 6- and 7-year-old students speak any English,” said Hasan Ali Kılıç of Eğitim-Sen.
