Biden Administration Wants To Stop All Data Collection On Pedophile Teachers
The rising problem of pedophilia within the left is now going to become an even bigger issue in public schools, which is just one more problem the left is trying to thrust on children and parents.
During the Trump administration, the Department of Education instituted a new data collection point that would include not just students who were raped by teachers and led to convictions but also students who were sexually assaulted or fondled where the incidents led to the reassignment of the offender to another school district before the investigation was completed. Creepy Joe’s Department of Education has rescinded that requirement and will no longer keep track of teachers who fondle kids and get hidden away somewhere else to do it to someone else’s kids.
According to Fox News, the Biden administration’s Department of Education is wishing to halt attempts to collect more data on sexual assault on students by teachers by rolling back a Trump-era program meant to keep track of these things:
The Department of Education is proposing to roll back attempts at collecting additional data on teacher-perpetrated sexual assaults, prompting concerns about transparency in reporting faculty misconduct.
Data collection, under last week’s proposal, would continue to include the number of documented incidents at a given school, but would retire Trump-era reporting on “rape or attempted rape, or sexual assault” allegations that were followed by “a resignation or retirement prior to final discipline or termination.”
Former Secretary Betsy DeVos implemented those provisions for the 2020-2021 school year, but they were reportedly delayed due to COVID-19.
According to a DoE spokesperson, the point is to “reduce burden and duplication data.”
“For the 2021-22 CRDC, OCR will continue to collect data on the number of documented incidents of offenses committed by school staff, including rape or attempted rape and sexual assault. These are data the CRDC has collected since 2015-16. We propose retiring data on the number of allegations against school staff to reduce the burden and duplication of data. This is a proposal, and OCR welcomes feedback on this proposal from the public during the 60-day comment period.”
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
The Education Department will still ask districts to report documented cases of rape and sexual assault. But it will not ask school officials to report allegations that resulted in the resignation or retirement of the accused. Former secretary of education Betsy DeVos added those optional questions to the 2020-2021 data collection, which was delayed one year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The department also won’t ask districts to report pending cases or cases in which a school staffer was reassigned to another district school prior to the conclusion of an investigation.
Reporting alleged sex crimes in addition to documented cases provides a fuller picture of sexual violence in schools, as the accused may retire, resign, or seek employment elsewhere before a district can reach a conclusion in the case.
But a former Office for Civil Rights acting assistant secretary Kimberly Richey, who worked under President Trump, has surmised the real reason for this has less to do with organization and more like an “ultimate act of bowing to the teacher’s unions.”
As reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Richey believes this will make covering up sexual assaults much easier.
“Through this proposal, the Biden administration is actively helping schools cover up these incidents, which we were intentionally shining a light on,” said Richey.
Fox News looked further into what it was that Biden’s DoE wanted to stop keeping track of and produced this list:
- “Whether any of the school’s students, faculty, or staff died as a result of a homicide committed at the school”;
- “Whether there has been at least one incident at the school that involved a shooting”;
- “Number of allegations made against a school staff member of rape or attempted rape, or sexual assault that occurred at the school, which were followed by a determination that the school staff member was responsible or not responsible for the offense”;
- “Number of allegations made against a school staff member of rape or attempted rape, or sexual assault that occurred at the school, which had a determination that remained pending”;
- “Number of allegations made against a school staff member of rape or attempted rape, or sexual assault that occurred at the school, which were followed by a duty reassignment prior to final discipline or termination.”
Many people don’t know that many public schools treat molestation by teachers precisely the same way the Catholic church has done, moving offenders around to different institutions. The public schools in America have a much bigger problem than the Catholic church. According to a DOE study, the number of sex offenders in public schools could be 100 times greater than the church scandal.
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 Carol 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.”
What we seem to have here is the Biden administration wants to cut off all tracking of pedophiles; that way, the schools can move teachers that have been caught from school to school, all without giving parents the right track where these teachers are.
It seems that the Left wants pedophilia to go mainstream; we already have the universities pushing that this is just another average sexual identity; how long until they demand that we accept this?
