Teacher Abuse and Consequences

The following is an excerpt from Andrea Peyser's column in the NY Post. Last week there were 2 major teacher/student sexual abuse situations that were brought to the public's attention.  Many times female teacher abuse is overlooked or the public perceives it in a different way.  Any teacher/student abuse is wrong and the victims suffer their entire lifetime. The other situation shows that a predator could have been stopped in the 1990s with video tape evidence; however, he was allowed to teach at a different school and is now under investigation for inappropriate contact with a 9 year old. ....... The past week will go down as a depraved chapter in public-school history. It's the week of Teachers Gone Wild -- and cruel. ...... But topping the list of deviant educators is one Thomas Gibbons, a violent pedophile I've written about for more than a decade.  On Friday, Gibbons, 59, was arrested for allegedly having sexual contact with a 9-year-old New Jersey relative while visiting the child's family between January 2010 and 2011. Would it surprise you to learn that Gibbons -- a tenured New York City special-ed teacher -- was once arrested for allegedly grabbing a student by the hair inside William H. Taft HS in The Bronx, slamming her against a wall and holding a gun to her chest?  He was mad that the child tried to break off a sexual relationship that began when she was 15. Guess what. He's still teaching!
