This is so unbelievably shocking, messed up, and wrong that we feel physically ill.
A second-grade teacher in an Oakland elementary school has been placed on administrative leave after it was discovered that two of his students had engaged in oral sex DURING class last week, and he failed to notice.
Students have also come forward to admit that on a second, separate occasion, he once again didn't realize that various children were taking off articles of clothing in front of him.
The school district, which only just discovered the incidents Wednesday, has begun conducting interviews with his students to verify the report, and while details remain vague, school spokesperson Tony Flint revealed:
"We believe the substance of the story is true."
This is one case where we truly hope that it's not.
Check out a news report on the matter (above).
Too young. Something like this should have NEVER happened, and will probably effect those poor children in ways that they can't even understand yet.
That teacher should never be allowed near kids again, and we hope that this incident is a kick below the belt for everyone in school systems everywhere to PAY ATTENTION. Their influence has the potential to change the lives of young people they guide every day.
Let's hope that it's for the better.
