New York Finds 104 Staff Student Flings Since ’09, Out of 593 Complaints
The special commissioner of investigations for city schools had been a busy person for the past few years. Richard Condon has had to go through 593 complaints of sexual misconduct by New York City Schools’ employees. Of those complaints 104 were founded and the teacher removed from the classroom and charges initiated. A number of teachers have been sentenced to jail time. While others have gotten probation or house arrest.
One thing stands out about many of the relationships is that they started on social networking sites. Where there is no oversight and more freedom to communicate between the teachers and students.
