A black high school teacher in Little Rock has resigned after school officials learned that she had pleaded guilty to a prostitution charge

McClellan High School algebra teacher Solona Islam, who had been put on paid administrative leave, said she resigned because she didn’t want to have the school district involved in her personal matters. The 27-year-old had been arrested on charges of prostitution and operating a business without a license. School officials said that they finally learned of the plea from a reporter and suspended Islam. Islam, who was in the fifth year of her teacher career, said that she hopes this attention doesn't affect her ability to find another job.
