Teachers, bosses charged in NJ school sex scandal

Source: Associated Press

Six months ago, a student came to Triton High School Principal Catherine DePaul with a disturbing story: She believed another student was involved in a sexual relationship with a teacher at the school, and she'd seen explicit text messages the two had exchanged.

At that moment, prosecutors say, a cover-up was put in motion that ultimately unraveled Thursday when DePaul, an assistant principal and three teachers were charged with offenses ranging from child endangerment to sexual assault and official misconduct.

Each of the five adults has been suspended from the school in the Philadelphia suburb of Runnemede, and each could face at least five years in prison if convicted.

The teachers all men in their late 20s or early 30s are accused of striking up relationships with female students during the 2011-2012 school year.

The only reason Christie hasn't hustled his ass down to Camden County yet is because he hasn't figured out how to play it.

7. I'm really glad they went after the two women administrators who covered this up!!!

They should pay for their part in this, too. They set the culture/tone of the school.

8. I don't remember that we had to be taught

any of that explicitly, in a master's program or student teaching practicum. We had it pounded into us that we were mandated reporters, but teaching us not to have sex with students? They are CHILDREN. I don't care if they are cute, bouncy little teenaged girls, they are children.

Male or female, don't these people have a moral compass? Can moral compasses be taught, or installed? Since when do they need to be? Is there more of this, or is more being reported? I don't have a regular classroom now, I sub. But I still don't recall anyone telling me that I had to refrain from having sex with students. I guess maybe we need to do that now.

9. As a teacher, this disgusts me to the core of my being.

Life. in. prison. They're predators, and they should be locked away from society for life.
