For the past several months I have made it my business to publish every incident involving teachers both male and female arrested for sleeping with students. Some as young as 14 years old. Each time an arrested is made local parents are shocked and appalled that the teachers they’ve entrusted for the education and safety of their children crossed a moral line.
But, although these incidents are reported on the local news, what doesn’t happen is any kind of report by the major news networks, or any editorial by The New York Times or Washington Post declaring that there’s a crisis going on in all parts of the country.
However, there wasn’t a shortage of national news reports or op ed pieces when Catholic priests were the culprits of sex abuse involving children. But, when it comes to teachers, nothing! No connecting of the dots, no effort to say we have an epidemic in progress. And the only conclusion I can draw is that teachers are a very important special interest group to a particular political party. The same political party that wanted the FCC to monitor the nation’s newsrooms.
We have a crisis going on and it needs to be addressed with a national debate on how to fix it. Teachers are abusing our children and their well being should be more important than a special interest group that is protected by the Democrat Party.
