LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Officials at an elementary school rocked by teacher sex abuse claims are investigating yet another allegation of misconduct, this one involving a teacher's aide accused of sending love letters to an 11-year-old boy.

The mother of the fourth-grader told the Los Angeles Times that the aide, a woman the mother appeared to be in her 50s, sent at least three letters to her son in 2009, including one that read: "when you get close to me, even if you give me the chills I like that. Don't tell nobody about this!"

"School sex abuse expert Mary Jo McGrath, an attorney who has conducted some 350 abuse investigations, said the investigation could uncover more cases."

Here's the money quote:

Remember the outpouring of support Roman Polanski gets from Hollywood-sex with children isn’t really a big deal in LA-LA land.

Hollywood isn’t going to go to bat for the suspects in these cases. If the two male teachers get convicted they can say goodbye to La La land.

Disgusting -- and I at least hope she was not a teacher's aid in an English class

The LA Unified School District is no better than Penn State in this regard.

It’s a culture of cover up and corruption. Verbal meetings. No notes taken. No action taken. How many victims could have been spared if they acted decisively early on?

Then, the governor has these solutions for the the state finances: raise taxes and build a bullet train. He is never pro-active on what he can cut from these perverts; just raise taxes for “the children”.

And all along we thought the elementary schools at least were safe.

“Don’t tell nobody”? Was this an English class?

In an elementary class English would be only one of the subjects taught.

A fiftyish, female,teacher’s aide soliciting an 11 yr old male student...now that’s sick.

But lower her age a little, raise the boy’s age a little, post her picture online if she’s a looker, then the whole thing would be WONDERFUL!

/Sarcasm

That’s what dozens and dozens of FReepers would rush onto this thread and tell us.

They WERE safe for decades. From grades 4 - 6 we walked to school and back every day. From our house it was 1.1 miles each way. Not one kid was ever threatened or molested. The incidence of child molestation runs in a 1:1 relationship to Liberal policies.

Here’s a sick part:
“Some parents applauded the decision, but others protested the move and circulated a petition calling for the staff at the school to be reinstated.”

Who are these people who wanted that kind of trash reinstated to be near children?
What kind of mentality is that?

True.
They probably don’t care what will happen.

Here are some scenarios I was thinking about regarding the mass transfers out of the school.

There might be some pretty good teachers who get transferred unfairly.

There might be more instances and the investigation could be hindered by transferring bad employees out of the area, in which case, other schools might inherit them before they are discovered.

How can anyone know that all the new teachers are good teachers?

How can anyone know that there won't be a couple of bad teachers being transferred in?

For the moment, I would rather keep all the teachers in place at the school so that a thorough top to bottom investigation can be done. There might be additional instances, or there might not. Transferring them all out creates a bigger problem for investigators.

“Transferring them all out creates a bigger problem for investigators.”

There is that.
Transferring them rather than getting to the bottom of it and prosecuting the offenders is a big problem.
Possible move to protect the guilty in part?

"Possible move to protect the guilty in part?"

You have hit on the most important point here. If all the teachers are bad teachers, then this only protects them. It relocates the problem, it doesn't solve it.

That sort of thing happens on my side of the country all too often.
And if it isn’t a protective transfer, it’s active stonewaling by the school board.
Like Middletown NY did with Robert Sigler.
They first tried to stonewall, then they tried to silence a whistle blower, then they finally admitted that they knew what was going on and did nothing..
..and Sigler was the superintendant of schools in Middletown NY.

From grades 4 - 6 we walked to school and back every day. From our house it was 1.1 miles each way.

Our town was smaller -- just 7/10 mile across. We walked, too. Today the buses pick each child up at each house. People here are petrified of child abuse -- and I'm not sure there's even been any.

But parents think there is.

The article lists her as a teacher’s aide, not a teacher. Qualifications may be different for aides at different schools and I don’t pretend to be the expert on who qualifies and why, but generally they are not required to have a teaching credential or 4 year degree. Nonetheless, it would helpful for people like this to be educated before trying to help educate others.

Saying “Don’t tell nobody” is pretty sad for a teacher’s aide. A double negative makes a statement positive,which is something the kids learn early on.

Is there a picture of this woman? I want to know what she looks like.
