In Texas: No Kid Left Behind… the Parking Lot
For all the good things I can say about Texas, there’s something in the water they’re serving up in their schools. So far this year there have been over 160 investigations of reported sex between K-12 students and their teachers.
The latest is an outrage. Houston-area teacher Alexandria Vera had an ongoing affair with one of her students and got pregnant. She told the investigator that the student’s family was “very supportive and excited” when she told them she was pregnant. She and her student are “in love.”
After questioning it turned out that Vera was so much in love with her student that she aborted his baby. Oh, it’s probably worth noting that the student was a thirteen-year-old boy.
This is just one more disgusting episode of my continuing series: Putting Your Children in Public School Is Child Abuse.
It’s interesting to note that the vast majority of the sex abuse cases are women teachers NOT men.
Can you imagine what would happen if a male teacher had an ongoing affair with a 13-year-old female student and she got pregnant? He’d be in prison forever. With women teachers the courts tend to look the other way. They typically get convicted of a misdemeanor or a low level felony and if they serve any time it’s not much.
Bottom line, there’s no accountability for female sexual predators. Especially if they’re teachers.
Christina Green, the Director of the Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas, testified about the importance of training school staff to spot abuse and urged school districts to set boundaries for social media use by faculty.
Christina must be a Democrat because she’s not thinking clearly. Those are okay things to do but if you want to stop female sexual predators – or at least dramatically reduce their numbers – lock them up for 30 years in a maximum security prison.
Accountability does wonders to stop predators. It won’t fix the problem completely, but it will certainly set a precedent and a very public one.
Then there’s always my preferred solution to the problem, homeschooling. Your kids will get a better education, they’ll be more well rounded, and they’ll be safe.
