how this White House protects school children
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Oct 02, 2009
It was the spring of 1988. A 15-year-old boy came to a high-school teacher and hesitantly admitted that he was having a homosexual affair with an adult man.
Did the teacher alert police to this case of sexual abuse? No.
Did he tell the boy about the meaning of statutory rape, urge him to prosecute, encourage him to seek professional help? No.
The high-school teacher told his impressionable young charge: "You know, I hope you knew to use a condom."
Today that high-school teacher is serving in the Obama administration, heading up an office in the Department of Education.
What office, you ask? The Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools.
