A Brooklyn teacher was busted Thursday on allegations of paying a 16-year-old boy, who is also a public school student, to perform a sex act on him, police said.
Waris Grant, 37, a teacher at Public School 256 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, was charged with promoting prostitution, performing a criminal sex act and acting in a manner injurious to a child.
It was not immediately clear when Grant paid the teen for sex, police said.
Also unclear was how the elementary school teacher knew the boy.
Grant was immediately reassigned to a role away from students after the allegations were made, a DOE spokesman said.
He continues to collect his $72,990 salary.
The teacher was arrested after the teen told his parents what happened and they called police.
