At least 135 teachers, aides charged with child sex crimes this year alone

Source: 5/19/22

At least 135 teachers and teachers’ aides have been arrested so far this year on child sex-related crimes in the U.S., ranging from child pornography to raping students.

An analysis conducted by Fox News Digital looked at local news stories week by week featuring arrests of teachers and teachers’ aides on child sex-related crimes in school districts across the country. Arrests that weren’t publicized were not counted in the analysis, meaning the true number may well be higher. 

The analysis found that at least 135 teachers and teachers’ aides have been arrested in 41 states between January 1 and May 13, which works out to about an arrest a day on average.

I think this may even out-weigh “Stranger Danger” actual events for the year.

So is it more safe for your child to speak to a total stranger than to go to school and talk to their teacher?

I am glad that this was reported. Nice to see the news not only targets registrants as “bad people”.

So how many of these teachers and aides were on the registry at the time of their crime (Sarcasm) – Oh, ya, NONE!!

This is a fear based article fox posted for clicks. Allthough I agree with what they did was bad, the problem isn’t as rampant as they made it out to be. There are 3.2milliin teachers in public schools. So not including the teachers in private schools. For each teacher you’re talking about 1-3 assistants depending on severity of need(special needs and such. So 135 out of let’s say 6million…including private schools more like 7 million.. that’s a .002 percent chance roughly of one of them commiting this crime. Not that rampant. Even less if you think about your kid possibly being the victim. There are like 50million students in public schools. So yeah, math vs fox would have to say, it’s not a major thing happening. It’s something that happens but rarely. That said,those who commit this crime should be punished, but our focus should continue on educating our kids the dangers that all folks can present in all circumstances, not just strangers. P.s. I’m really tired so I apologize if my math is off. Please correct me if it is.

Well Janice they did take away paddling in school. Wonder what punishment today is. Oh the teacher slapped me today or used a switch on me today. Whats next guidance counselors that get their training on MTV today or wine and gin magazine. guns and amo lol….. So who’s supporting who with a system breakdown on many scales in government or school systems.

All of them arrested are not only people that these students have known but also in positions of authority and trust.

Stranger danger they ain’t! Registry fails again to protect the public! Wasted taxpayer money at work!

Arrests that weren’t publicized were not counted in the analysis, meaning the true number may well be higher. “

Like any news organization would pass up a story of any person arrested for any sex crime, teachers on students in particular.

At this rate we will be running out soon.

Will Allen I spent most of my jr high and high school in the counselors office from time to time and yes a bit of time iweekend lock up in county. The boys told me about prunity town and the older ones told me how hard it was in prison. Abuse comes in all sizes but in school systems it should never happen. again all I can say is we all can sometimes fall into this but a good counselor, teacher, aide or other should think of their job which is to thin education. One even wonder if they have sex education in the school systems today or has that been banned.

Once again, an article all too eager to scream about a problem, with absolutely no insight into causes, and no help to ensure better outcomes.

Sexual misconduct between adults and children is a widespread and pervasive problem, but the societal sledgehammer approach shows just how little we care about understanding and mitigating it. We’d much rather prosecute, malign, and banish our way out from under it, but that won’t work until everyone has a family member or friend locked up and there’s no one left to target.

You can bet there is more of this happening all across the country even now. Hell, it was happening when I went to school in the 80’s. Nothings changed. Registry list just keeps growing. Prevention needs to be taught. But who will teach? They use to have kid celebrities make infomercials during Saturday morning cartoons back in the mid-80’s. Now nothing. I think the lawmakers see prevention as two-fold. It can help the problem, but it can also unintentionally spread the problem.

all my teachers were strange to me and weird

Bunch of morons. 135 incidents means that there were only0.000045 of the 3.2 million teachers in the USA

Isn’t it great that the registry is preventing sex crimes?
