As if we need more laws…
What if there were laws that prohibited the promotion or teaching of any behavior(s) that would be grounds for suspension/ expulsion?
This use to be called “contributing to the delinquency of a minor!” These types of laws would apply to students, school personnel, and visitors.
While grounds for suspension/expulsion vary, most students, teachers, and personnel, would be gone or at least be severely punished if they:
- caused, attempted to cause, or threatened to cause physical injury to another person,
- possessed, sold, or otherwise furnished any firearm, knife, explosive or other dangerous objects.
- unlawfully possessed, used, sold, or otherwise furnished, or been under the influence of any controlled substance, or alcoholic beverage.
- committed or attempted to commit robbery or extortion.
- caused or attempted to cause damage to school property or private property.
- stole or attempted to steal school or private property.
- possessed or used tobacco, or any products containing tobacco or nicotine products.
- committed an obscene act or engaged in habitual profanity or vulgarity.
- unlawfully possessed, or unlawfully offered, arranged or negotiated to sell any drug paraphernalia.
- disrupted school activities or otherwise willfully defied the valid authority of school officials.
- knowingly received stolen school property or private property.
- possessed an imitation firearm.
- commit or attempted to commit a sexual offense, assault.
- harassed, threatened, or intimidated a pupil who is a complaining witness in a school disciplinary action.
- committed sexual harassment.
- caused/attempted to cause/threatened to cause injury while participating in an act of hate violence.
- made terrorist threats against school officials and/or school property.
We cannot imagine any public or private school allowing teachers to promote, teach or participate in any of the above behaviors or activities, unless it involved SEX.
In the case of SEX, the US actually spends Billions in taxpayer dollars to train sex educators to be alone in a class of students and teach them how to engage in sexual behaviors including oral sex, anal sex, sexual foreplay, intercourse, and condom negotiation skills.
Yet, if these same students were caught performing any of these sex acts on campus, in the back of the classroom, on a school bus, or at a school event they would be suspended, expelled or maybe arrested.
And, if it were proven that a teacher or school personnel performed sex acts with students, would they be fired, lose their license, face criminal charges, and/or be placed on a sexual offenders list? Maybe, or maybe not!
Is this really fair? After all, many of today’s teachers and administrators have grown up with unbridled “safe sex” and are now teaching it to our children. Why should they or their students be punished for doing what is within their “sexual rights.”
Almost every state has implemented laws mandating that “safe sex” be taught to children from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Regardless of their supposed legal status as minors, children are being taught that “consensual” “safe sex” is the law of the land.
Anything goes as long as they want it!
How could any child feel safe in a school that promotes or turns a blind-eye to sexual activity?
What about the 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys who have been sexually abused in the US? Who are they supposed to turn to for help if the so-called “mandated reporters” in their school are supporting or condoning sexual activity with and among minors?
Does your child feel sexually safe at their school?
It seems that the safest place for a sexual predator is within the walls of your school. They have motive, opportunities to groom their victims, and access to your children.
We need to be just as vigilant about protecting our children from sexual influences and predators within our schools, as we are about protecting them from other dangerous behaviors.
Otherwise, there really are no ethical grounds for punishing them when they “sexually misbehave” at school.
