The StarTribune reports this morning that the principal of Chanhassen Highschool was arrested due to a child pornography sting. Stories like these are getting all too common. It seems we can go just a couple of days and up pops another allegation of a teacher engaging in sexual conduct with kids.
When you think about it, it makes sense. If one has a proclivity for sexual attraction for children, what better role for you than one in which you work with them, all day, every day? If you're a wolf, why not go where the sheep are plentiful?
What I don't understand is that there is absolutely no backlash to these myriad incidents, let alone recognition that there is a problem. Unlike the Catholic Church which is still being exonerated due to actions of predator priests, teachers are still held up on some pedestal. I'd argue that it is because the left, which owns a monopoly on the media, also owns a similar monopoly on education. Hence, these stories continue to be reported on a weekly basis (they can't be swept away), yet nobody ever connects the dots.
Pay attention going forward, and see if I'm right. We have a problem with teachers putting our kids at risk, and nobody is doing or saying anything about it.
