The local headlines around here are filled with the news of a high school coach under investigation for having sex with a student.
Sigh. Sadly, that’s not really news anymore is it?
Dr. Troy Hutchings, one of the country’s leading researchers on the abuse of students by teachers, says that the problem is even more prevalent because of the digital age. (We didn’t really need a researcher to tell us that, did we?)
The Washington Post reports that in 2014 alone, there were 781 reported cases of teachers and other school employees accused or convicted of sexual relationships with students.
