She did the right thing, in reporting to her superior. The people that should be monitored are the parents. Why is the teacher being held responsible. As some have commented it is her job to teach, it is not her job to teach morals, really from a teacher. It seems these days everyone is ready to blame all the wrong sources, and not the parent, who is the one to teach right from wrong, etc.

Because it was an in-class restroom, and she didn't know where the students were. Had she been providing supervision, she would have been able to prevent the from going there together. What they were doing in there is actually the least relevant part as for why she is facing firing.

And I must agree with you that the parenting should be examined. This was unheard of when I went to kindergarten.

Absolutely. I would not be surprised to find out that one or both of these children had been sexually abused at home.

That's a very good point. For several reasons, the parents should be "looked at",'tis true.

But it's also very possible these tykes have picked up stuff from older siblings or other older kids in school [like on the school bus].

Or from other adults who don't give a crap about kids being present relative to the adults' communication and actions.

I don't agree with firing this teacher as the event has been related in the article.

playing doctor about 50 years ago. The teacher lost track of two out of a class of how many? Watching kids at that age is like herding cats.
You concentrate on one desk full and when ya look up two have snuck off to the sex Ed chapter. I don't think she should be fired. Reprimanded perhaps and afforded a class room assistant. And yes, the possibility of abuse should be examined at the home front.

That is one likely scenario. But it doesn't say they were actually having sex, just that they said they were. They probably heard the term on television, and knew it was what a boy and a girl did, but probably didn't really know what it was. Unless they were allowed to watch hardcore porn or really were abused, they might think it was something else, like cuddling and kissing, or dry humping. So they probably just thought it was a cool word and didn't really know what it meant.

Given their age of 5yo I seriously doubt they were actually having intercourse, they just thought that being naked together and rubbing up and down was 'having sex' I know I thought things like that at that age, one myself and other little boys and girls would play doctor after school, we get naked and touch each other and rub around and we thought that was having sex. I think this is much ado about nothing, and while the kids were only expressing curiosity the resulting adults freaking out and official attention, embarrassed and humiliated in counseling and all that, is going to traumatize them about sexuality for the rest of their life!

I don't think she need to be fired. Maybe the other poster is right, maybe this is media sensationalizing...again! LOL!

Really. But it isn't what it is cracked up to be. Maybe about 20 years ago, a 7-year-old boy got in trouble for kissing a girl in his class, and she asked him for it. He was to be suspended a week for violating their no-tolerance sexual harassment policy. It sparked international outrage, and he was only out of school for maybe a day.
