School is thought of as safe place to send our children to learn and expand their knowledge. Unfortunately, they are vulnerable to several types of abuse including sexual abuse during and after school hours. Sexual abuse could be from teachers, coaches, and school administrates, happening to both boys and girls. As reported in the news, this may even be female teachers with older high school boys. In many instances the abusers use their position to take advantage of innocent children and students. Schools are responsible for the safety of our children and to properly supervise and protect the children. Schools should be a place where parents feel safe to send their children and be certain they are protected from abuse.
