What are parents to do when their child comes home from school with stories about "this creepy guy in my class" and it turns out to be the teacher?

It’s time to let teachers get married.
How very sad. I wonder how the people in the teachers union would feel if their own kids were molested? It’s terrible to subject kids to such trauma.
NAMBLA must have a lot of influence in this NYC teachers union

"When schoolchildren start paying union dues, thats when Ill start representing the interests of schoolchildren."
after all, it's for the children...
Parents who allow their children to go to the New York public schools, staffed by union child molesters, are guilty of child abuse and should have their children removed to safer homes in other states.
