The news about Catholic Priests was headlines for years. TEACHERS are far far ahead of priests in the molesting of students and there is no national outrage at all. the place millions send their children daily and the incidents of teachers molesting students in epidemic. Yet no outcry! Perhaps the priest issue was more news because so many like to bash Catholics but hold teachers in higher esteem. There is a teacher arrested for molesting a student at least weekly nationally and has been for many years. Where is the national outrage of the lack of safety children face in schools? We all talk about bullying and have national anti-bullying days but no one seems to care teachers are far far more dangerous to children than bullies are in any respect!
