The Associated Press is running a very telling article about sexual misconduct in our nation's schools. One of the more frightening statistics said the following:

One report mandated by Congress estimated that as many as 4.5 million students, out of roughly 50 million in American schools, are subject to sexual misconduct by an employee of a school sometime between kindergarten and 12th grade. That figure includes verbal harassment that's sexual in nature.

As a mom, what do you think is causing the growing number of sexual misconduct cases in schools?

1. Parents and students are reporting teacher and student sex now more than they did in the past.
2. Society has become more sexualized and the lines have been blurred between adult and child.
3. There are no adequate background checks for teachers. (A lot of teachers who have been accused of sexual misconduct simply lose their current job, but end up teaching elsewhere.)

Let's hear your thoughts.

I think it's a combination of all three. I also think turning your kids over to strangers isn't the best way to raise them so we homeschool. They're happier and I'm happier.
