Over 180 educators in grades K-12 have been arrested on charges relating to child sex crimes in 2022 alone. The charges, faced by four principals, among others, ranged from actually raping children to child pornography. One teacher in June received a 50-year sentence for sexually assaulting a 7-year-old student and then conspiring to kill him.
In total, there were four principals, 153 teachers, 12 teachers’ aides and 12 substitute teachers, Fox reports. In April, a Florida middle school teacher was found guilty of sexual battery of a child. A high school choir teacher was charged with 9 counts of criminal sexual assault of students. A Missouri teacher faced an investigation for an alleged sexual relationship with a student. A Seattle teacher was charged with sexually molesting a student. These are only a few of the 181 educators charged with crimes against students.
The Post Millennial has covered many of these charges as they emerged during the first 6 months of 2022, and now Fox Digital analyzed news stories, culled from local reports since January, and found that the average is an arrest a day.
While men were the majority of the arrests, at 78 percent, women were also among those educators who were arrested on charges of sexually violating their students. 77 percent of the arrests were due to alleged crimes against students directly.
In addition to alleged criminal actions, teachers have been found to take students to drag shows, against parents’ wishes, others have bragged about wearing ladies’ undergarments to schools. A third-grade teacher recently admitted to socially transitioning students.
2022 has been a fraught year in education, with legislators and parents pushing back against school boards and school districts that have had free rein over students and the education they receive.
In Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis passed a bill to protect parental rights in education and prevent schools from keeping information about students secret, specifically as regards gender identity, and requiring schools to keep sex education age appropriate. His initiatives are the envy of parents across the country.
