Failure to share serious criminal and breech of trust issues leave children vulnerable
The Arizona Republic sprang into incensed editorial mode on Friday noting that State Board of Education investigators have, since 2010, failed to properly record all teacher disciplinary information to state and national databases —- leaving children unprotected. It correctly noted that lacking the input of this vital information, offending teachers can go on to other districts or states and prey on other students. Among the offenses listed were: “sex crimes against minors, other improper relationships with students, teaching while under the influence of alcohol, teaching inappropriate material to students and physically harming students.”
Seeing Red AZ began tracking teachers who sexually exploited students in 2009, referring to our posts on Arizona’s predatory teachers as “The endless parade.” Eventually, local and national politics as well as world events got in the way since these cases were occurring in rapid succession.
Due to the damning information which came directly from school administrators, we’ve selected this Sept. 2009 post for perusal. — which is far from the first as you’ll notice when you see links to earlier articles. This April 2009 post also contains shocking admissions from Board of Education officials who said they would have divulged the information to the new school, if, (presumably like clairvoyants), they would have asked. This case involved a “love triangle” with a teacher in which one student lover stabbed another student rival to death.
Still the left-leaning teachers unions go all out to protect the predators as this Wall Street Journal report by former news anchor Campbell Brown factually details.
