“In the civil cases, we have taken over $3 billion, but you’re not getting a lot of change in the system,” he says.

he is right. not much change since 1991.

...because the problem was largely fixed by then.
graphs of actual data, show that since 1991,
the rate of abuse is way below even public schools.

and public schools are specifically immune to suits
(confirmed by the US Supreme Court),
even though abuse there is orders of magnitude higher.

“ Consider the statistics: In accordance with a requirement of President Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act, in 2002 the Department of Education carried out a study of sexual abuse in the school system.

Hofstra University researcher Charol Shakeshaft looked into the problem, and the first thing that came to her mind when Education Week reported on the study were the daily headlines about the Catholic Church.

“[T]hink the Catholic Church has a problem?” she said. “The physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests.”

So, in order to better protect children, did media outlets start hounding the worse menace of the school systems, with headlines about a “Nationwide Teacher Molestation Cover-up” and by asking “Are Ed Schools Producing Pedophiles?”

No, they didn’t. That treatment was reserved for the Catholic Church, while the greater problem in the schools was ignored altogether. “

...20 years ago, this was a valid issue.
now, it is simply greedy men making money they can’t get from schools, or small individual churches.
and atheists and liberals who hate the Catholic church, because it is the one institution they fear most.
like the “flak heaviest over target” saying,
the Catholic church is the most hated and persecuted in the world.
i actually had a female English professor, tell me that her Christian church, has more in common with and was closer to ISLAM, than the Catholic Church.

So she embraces Izlam or she hates her 'Christian' church???

And she's an authority on the Catholic church as well...

I think she pulled your chain and likely is a bonified Catholic...

Ya right...Individual teachers are molesting up to two hundred students at a time...And all the rest of the teachers are pedophiles and are covering up for each other...
