Miramonte K-6 School in Los Angeles: heartbroken, appalled, & horrified that children were preyed upon by two teachers. An investigation is ongoing and the two teachers have been fired immediately upon discovery of the abuse. Could teachers with potential to be sex offenders be screened somehow before entering the profession? Is our laissez-faire approach allowing self-selection into the profession too lax, also allowing in people who are horrifically unsuited to be trusted with young children as the two teachers accused of “lewd acts” clearly are? How did the administration allow this to happen in the absence of classroom observation and peer review? Many more questions emerge as the community grapples with this enormous betrayal of trust.
