We covered this back in May, but according to recent reports the trend of one public educator per day charged with child sex crimes has not let up. At the end of June, 181 educators have been arrested for sexually molesting children.
Here's a story from just yesterday:
From Fox News' most recent analysis:
The analysis found that at least 181 have been arrested between January 1 and June 30, which works out to exactly an arrest a day on average.
The 181 educators included four principals, 153 teachers, 12 teachers' aides and 12 substitute teachers.
Men also made up the vast majority – 78% – of the arrests.
Many of the arrests involved especially heinous allegations.
The allegations are, well, hard to stomach. Two examples:
Anessa Paige Gower, a 35-year-old former biology teacher at Making Waves Academy in Richmond, California, was charged with 29 counts of child molestation on April 8.
Gower is accused of sexually abusing seven students between 2021-2022 when she was a teacher at Making Waves, with allegations including forcible sodomy of minors and sharing sexually graphic photos over online platforms.
John Doty, a 35-year-old former biology teacher at Career Academy South Bend in Indiana, was charged with two counts of rape, one count of attempted rape and six counts of child seduction on Feb. 9.
Doty is accused of repeatedly raping a 16-year-old female student and threatening to kill her. He is scheduled to stand trial in January 2023.
I want to couch those figures with the caveat that there are over 3 million educators in the public school system, so 181 is roughly .006%, which means there are a lot of great teachers out there not molesting children.
On the other hand, these numbers are just those educators that have been publicized for the most heinous acts like this:
Last year, President Biden's Education Department rolled back reporting of teacher-child sexual-assault requirements, so it's difficult to say how great the problem is.
However, according to a 2014 study, by President Obama's Justice Department, 1 in 10 students experienced school employee sexual misconduct. To put that number in perspective, the Boy Scouts' sexual abuse scandal involved 1 in 5,000 children. The Catholic and Baptist Church scandals even fewer. A child was 500 times more likely to be abused by an educator than any of those organizations... before 2014.
Back then, teachers weren't actively pushing explicit sex in the classroom because of state legislation. Consider that the ‘21-‘22 New Jersey sample lesson plans for state standards included cartoons showing children masturbating.
And this is happening all over the nation:
We've certainly covered some of the crazier things being taught in schools:
Without a significant change in direction in our public school system, this problem is only going to get worse.
Protect your kids!
