It is beyond "just plain weird." Children are assaulted sexually every day in public schools across the nation.
The problem of sexual predator teachers is epidemic.

Thomas Baudier, 22, of 26 Valley Road, Northport, was charged with third-degree sexual abuse endangering the welfare of a child after his arrest Monday night. He was held overnight at the Seventh Precinct and was scheduled for arraignment Tuesday at First District Court in Central Islip."

Isn't 22 years old to young to be a teacher?
I think better screening of any person that is around children or the elderly for that fact, is definitely needed. A 22 year old professional should not be teaching a class of 16 year olds.

This guy looks weird. I bet Mommy and Daddy are very proud of their boy. The money they spent on his education. It didn't help. Now you have to bail him out of jail, and pay for his attorney's fee. WONDERFUL!!!!!!!

I sort of agree with you but, the older the female teacher the younger the boy. Generally, the older the male teacher the younger the boy. The younger the male teacher the older the girl???? Guess they really need to look at more than the degrees here. We seem to have outgrown honest teachers. The majority are more and more sex offenders. They will be putting cameras in the classrooms and in the parking lots....and that won't stop them either. Maybe we should teach our children by video....

Is this still America? Is anyone innocent until proven guilty? Shouldn't we wait until the story is told until we make judgements? It could be a young woman looking for attention or a former student trying to get back at the teacher and using a minor to do it.

Let's wait before we draga young teacher's reputation through the mud.

It isn't a Long Island problem - it is a national epidemic.
The American Medical Association found in 1986 that one in four girls, and one in eight boys, are sexually abused in or out of school before the age of 18. Two years later, a study included in The Handbook on Sexual Abuse of Children, reported that one in four girls, and one in six boys, is sexually abused by age 18. It was reported in 1991 that 17.7 percent of males who graduated from high school, and 82.2 percent of females, reported sexual harassment by faculty or staff during their years in school. Fully 13.5 percent said they had sexual intercourse with their teacher.

In New York City alone, at least one child is sexually abused by a school employee every day. One study concluded that more than 60 percent of employees accused of sexual abuse in the New York City schools were transferred to desk jobs at district offices located inside the schools. Most of these teachers are tenured and 40 percent of those transferred are repeat offenders. They call it “passing the garbage” in the schools. One reason why this exists is due to efforts by the United Federation of Teachers to protect teachers at the expense of children. Another is the fact that teachers accused of sexual misconduct cannot be fired under New York State law.
One of the nation’s foremost authorities on the subject of the sexual abuse of minors in public schools is Hofstra University professor Charol Shakeshaft. In 1994, Shakeshaft and Audrey Cohan did a study of 225 cases of educator sexual abuse in New York City. Their findings are astounding.

All of the accused admitted sexual abuse of a student, but none of the abusers was reported to the authorities, and only 1 percent lost their license to teach. Only 35 percent suffered negative consequences of any kind, and 39 percent chose to leave their school district, most with positive recommendations. Some were even given an early retirement package.

Moving molesting teachers from school district to school district is a common phenomenon. And in only 1 percent of the cases do superintendents notify the new school district. According to Diana Jean Schemo, the term “passing the trash” is the preferred jargon among educators.

Shakeshaft has also determined that 15 percent of all students have experienced some kind of sexual misconduct by a teacher between kindergarten and 12th grade; the behaviors range from touching to forced penetration. She and Cohan also found that up to 5 percent of teachers sexually abuse children. Shakeshaft will soon be ready to release the findings of a vast study undertaken for the Planning and Evaluation Service Office of the Undersecretary, U.S. Department of Education, titled,“Educator Sexual Misconduct with Students: A Synthesis of Existing Literature on Prevalence in Connection with the Design of a National Analysis."
