Sexual Deviants Posing as Teachers In Our Schools

Sexual Misconduct Plagues US Schools
One report mandated by Congress estimated that as many as 4.5 million students, out of roughly 50 million in American schools, are subject to sexual misconduct by an employee of a school sometime between kindergarten and 12th grade. That figure includes verbal harassment that's sexual in nature.
These are people who are hired to care for, instruct and educate our children but are instead groping, molesting and even raping them. And when they are accused by their victims, the victims are, more often than not, called liars and the charges dismissed.
In case after case the AP examined, accusations of inappropriate behavior were dismissed. One girl in Mansfield, Ohio, complained about a sexual assault by teacher Donald Coots and got expelled. It was only when a second girl, years later, brought a similar complaint against the same teacher that he was punished.

And that second girl also was ostracized by the school community and ultimately left town.
This is a system that excuses criminal sexual misconduct and allows it to continue unchecked. Do you know what sexual misconduct can do to a child? Neither do I but I don't expect it makes them better in any way.

And the schools don't want to embarrass themselves (or open themselves up to massive lawsuits) so they don't open investigations and the molesting teacher is allowed to leave quietly with their teaching license so they can go teach and molest more children somewhere else.

The article is scary, awful and makes me want to perform personal background checks on each of my children's teachers.

Luckily, in this day of the internets and high speed information transmission and blogs, teachers who grope are less and less likely to get away with it. But how many kid's lives are turned upside down by sick bastards (9 of 10 educational molesters are men) getting their sick rocks off by ruining our children.

I'm pretty thoroughly disgusted by all of this. And fearful for my own children as they start to enter the educational system.
