    What the heck is going on in our schools??? Actually, I think it has been happening for many many years. It’s just long ago it was kept quiet… Filthy dirty people preying on children. I am glad the kids today are able to speak up and say what is really going on…… These people (not only Teachers) need to be castrated and have their hands cut off!!!

    i saw a list once of all the teachers transferred or dismissed from school districts in Califonria it was very long list, and this was back in the early 1990s.
    I was stunned when I saw it and wondered why it was all kept underwraps. Started homeschooling both my kids shortly thereafter. I know there is some wonderful people that love teaching kids how to read an grow up to be solid citizens but 10% really have no intentions, have no gift to teach and they have to be removed promptly.

    Shall we all wait to see if he is guilty or witch lynch him?
    Geeeees people get a life. Won’t kill ya to wait a while just to see if he is convicted.
    If he turns out to be innocent, you people just helped ruin what’s left of his life….
    If he turns out to be guilty i will be the first in line to help hold the rope.
