About Time!

The AP via Yahoo News:

Students in America's schools are groped. They're raped. They're pursued, seduced and think they're in love.

An Associated Press investigation found more than 2,500 cases over five years in which educators were punished for actions from bizarre to sadistic.

AP: Sexual misconduct plagues US schools ( By MARTHA IRVINE and ROBERT TANNER, AP National Writers)
500 cases per year! However, what do we hear more about? Yeap, clerical sexual misconduct, I wonder how many instances of clerical sexual misconduct with minors occurs? I bet even at its height it did not come to 500 per year.

Do not get me wrong I am not trying to excuse it or equivocate but its about time sexual misconduct in our school system be more thoroughly exposed. Up here the story we are hearing a fair amount about is a teacher from Hortonville who is being tried for sexually abusing girls in school.

I wonder if the schools will get sued? The article I refer to above starts off describing the case of one teacher who shuffled from school to school and over his career had six accusations of sexual misconduct lodged against him.
