SALEM, Oregon (LifeSiteNews) — Homosexual Oregon public school teacher Dean Wright faces a criminal investigation for allegedly sending nude photos of himself to at least one student.
“Today, I received a report of an inappropriate image believed to be a staff member being shared on social media,” Principal Alicia Kruska of Judson Middle School wrote to parents on Monday. “It is believed that this image has been viewed by some students,” Kruska wrote, according to the Salem Reporter.
“We can confirm the Salem Police Department is investigating a concern brought to us by Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS) regarding potential inappropriate contact with a student by one of their staff members,” law enforcement told The Post Millennial. “The concern was brought to our attention on Monday, March 28, 2022. Salem Police detectives are [investigating] the incident, and since it is an active investigation, we cannot provide any specific details.”

The news site reported that Wright is a homosexual and supporter of critical race theory proponent Ibram X. Kendi. “Every single child in America should read this book,” Wright reportedly wrote on his Snapchat account, with a photo of “Stamped (For Kids)” by Kendi. The book claims to help students “identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their own lives.”
It’s based on Kendi’s book “Stamped From the Beginning,” which argues that racism is embedded in American history and society.
“My summer class is reading it and they love it,” Wright wrote, according to screenshots posted by The Post Millennial and its reporter Andy Ngo.
Wright also said he wanted “gay history” taught in schools. He shared at one school board meeting how he is a homosexual and felt welcome at the school, though he first hid his homosexuality from school officials.
The Salem Reporter reported in December 2019:
Wright, a 7th grade social studies teacher at Judson Middle School, was at an evening board session to explain his experiences as a gay teacher in the district, and the challenges LGBTQ students face. When he started teaching three years ago, he told them, he didn’t share his orientation. “I was terrified if I told anyone I was going to lose my job,” he explained.
The school board for the district spent time during that meeting “list[ing] their gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, native language and whether they have a disability.”
Ensuring that school officials can share their homosexuality is important for Wright — he said it was “heartbreaking” to hear about students protesting Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill. The newly-signed law protects parents and students from teachers and counselors who groom kids to identify as homosexual or transgender, meaning gender dysphoric. It applies to children in grades PreK through 3rd.
“Students are out here fighting for their right to exist in public education,” Wright wrote on his Twitter on March 5.
