U.S. cracks down on female teachers who sexually abuse students | Reuters

How many public school employees are sexually abusing children in the schools? 800 in one year!
It’s about time this kind of abuse by both female and male teachers is addressed. But I don’t hear any politician even mentioning this.

In U.S. schools last year, almost 800 school employees were prosecuted for sexual assault, nearly a third of them women. The proportion of women facing charges seems to be higher than in years past, when female teachers often got a pass, said Terry Abbott, a former chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Education, who tracked the cases.

This year’s numbers are already slightly ahead of last year with 26 cases of female school employees accused of inappropriate relationships with male students in January compared to 19 cases the previous January.
