Sex-abuse cover ups in public schools

This article details how schools in Oregon cover for a teacher who has sexually molested multiple students, letting him leave the district quietly for 'personal reasons'. I worked at a high school where the teacher assistant for the Special Ed Classroom was involved in a drive by shooting of her ex-husband, which missed and wounded a 17 year old. She was given a month's paid leave and return to work, despite parent protests. Imagine if I still lived in that district? My daughter Christina might end up in that class. Our children are at risk in public schools in so many ways.

Prof. Carol Shakeshaft's report on sex abuse in public schools reveals how a child is 100 times more likely to be abused in public schools than by a Catholic priest. Yet Google 'sex-abuse cover-up' and that's almost all you see, the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal.
