Unlimited Teacher Background Checks and Public Records Searches
- Every day, our children get up, get dressed, and go off to school. Most parents will agree that, as their child steps out that door, we worry about them. Every day, more and more reports are heard on the news, about children who have been stalked, molested, or even abducted on their way to school. Naturally, this has made for more cautious parents, when it comes to that trip to school; many walk their children down and wait with them at the bus stops, while others drive their children in to school. Anything to keep our kids healthy and happy.
Unfortunately, while we take so much time ensuring their our children make it to school safely, many of us wrongly assume that, once our child makes it to school, they are safe until it’s time for them to make that trip home again. Reports of teacher indiscretions have been more and more frequent, in the news, as of late. While, as children, we may have only heard the occasional rumor about this or that teacher being a little too friendly with the students, people are becoming more and more aware of the dangers that may be lurking in a place where we assumed our children were protected - Our schools.
On January 19th, 2005, an Indiana teacher was arrested and charged with four felony counts of child molestation. Police said that they found pornographic DVDs and videotapes, in a closet, in the teacher’s classroom. Just days before this, a teacher in Santa Ana, California, was charged with 20 counts of lewd acts for allegedly having sex with two of her former students, who were between the ages of 12 and 14. In 2006, a Massachusetts drama teacher was charged with two counts of child rape, child enticement, and one count of indecent assault and battery.
And the list doesn’t stop here.
With growing public awareness about child sexual abuse and the need to speak out, more and more are stepping forward to speak on things that were once hushed and considered taboo. Regardless of what state you live in, regardless of whether you send your child to public school, private school, or the most expensive and elite boarding school, there is still a risk that your child may be approached, enticed, or abused by a sexual predator.
So how do we fight this new menace? Your best defense against such things happening is to educate yourself and to be aware. How do you do that? Fortunately, there are many different avenues that are available on the web, for you to look up teacher’s credentials, perform background checks, and to ensure that there are no previous incidents involving your child’s teacher. You have every right to know who is teaching your children and watching over them when they are at school. Exercise your right and keep your children safe.
