I demand that President Obama do something right away or resign from office!

You would think he would run the Department of Education better than this.

Who elected this jerk? Americans? We must have been crazy!

The above link to teacher crimes indicates a teacher arrested for sexual abuse of a young boy in her class, is put on paid administrative leave. It seems that the school systems dont take this sex abuse thing real seriously.

Also looking at the number of teachers arrested this past year for sexual abuse, I cant believe how many celibate teachers there are.

How come you never hear about these cases on the news? And what gives with the commentary in the online articles. There are folks there that think its real cool that a child is abused by their teacher. So in twenty or thirty years are we going to try to solve the teacher abuse crisis.

See, it's not just catholic priests - it's other catholics too!

Perhaps you should have left out the "Trinity Catholic High School" part, in order to better mislead more than you already do by these weak examples.

I am at loss as to what these are supposed to be examples of. The poster seems to simply be detailing the current sexual abuse crisis in the public schools.

It would be interesting to know what sentances the women receive. Usually its a few months in jail and probation, since boys really don't mind being sexually abused. They actually like it!

If the sexual abuse of minors is really a concern of ours, as a society, then we have to be concerned in all situations. It is not okay to say that children abused by teachers are somehow less worthy of our attention. Abuse is abuse.

A former Carolina High teacher has resigned in the wake of charges that nearly six years ago she sexually touched a student who had moved into her home, authorities said.

A 21-year-old woman has told Greenville County sheriff’s deputies that she was 15 when Melissa Kellie McBee, now 47, touched her, according to a warrant.

McBee was a health occupations teacher and cross country coach when school officials learned of the allegations and placed her on leave on Feb. 17, said Oby Lyles, a spokesman for Greenville County Schools.

She resigned March 25, he said.

McBee, of Simpsonville, is charged in warrants with second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

A warrant alleges that the woman was 16 when McBee provided her with beer and a vodka-and-tonic. She was jailed on the charges this week, Master Deputy Sam Cureton said.

McBee had been with the school district since 1991, serving as a physical education teacher and coaching girls’ basketball, volleyball and softball, Lyles said.

A former south Florida teacher has been found guilty of traveling to Thailand to have sex with young boys.

A federal jury in Chicago convicted 48-year-old Charles Stokes on Friday at the end of a four day trial.

Stokes, who once lived in the Miami area, taught in public schools from the mid-1980s to the late 1990s. In 2002 he left Chicago for Thailand in 2002 and lived there until his arrest in 2006.

Federal prosecutors say he engaged in sexual conduct with about 70 boys under the age of 15 while he lived overseas. Two of the boys, who were 11 at the time of the abuse, testified at his trial. Prosecutors say they also found thousands of photos of Stokes engaging in sexual conduct with young boys.

He faces up to 30 years in prison when he's sentenced on August 26th.

Reviewing the statistics compiled by the University of Pennsylvania, in reference to the sexual abuse of children. If you had a room with ten people in it, four of those ten would be the number of teachers who had sexually abused a minor. Two of those ten would be non-catholic christian clergy. Less than one of those ten would be roman catholic priests. Of course these are statistics with an error margin of .05%.
