Sexual abuse in schools

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Sexual abuse seems to be a chronic problem in New York schools. Making it worse, in the eyes of some, is the inability to rid schools of educators found guilty of improper conduct.

Campbell Brown is the director of the Parents Transparency Project and Joseph Cumming is a board member and also a member of the Horace Mann Survivors Group.

Some of the most disturbing cases that come to mind for Brown is the "teacher who touched a young girls breasts and engaged in sexual banter with the student and was fined and sent back to the class. Or another teacher who asked a girl for a strip tease and he was sent back to class. And the man who admitted to attending two NAMBLA meetings. NAMBLA supports legalization of sex between a man and a boy," said Brown.

The organization is trying to shed light on the problem of sex abuse in the city schools in the hope penalties for the offenders are severe.
