Here is a story out of Michigan that conveys the quality of teachers our public school system attracts. Please consider sharing.
But first, the names, so they will always be a Google search away:
A young boy changes from happy, to moody and uncontrollable. Tears family apart.
Father suffers MS and the Mother is told she has cancer. Four days later (last October) the parents are told a trusted teacher has been molesting their son for three years.
They trusted the legal system and the molester was sentenced to 15-30 years. But during the sentencing several character witnesses (named above) came out in support of the molester. One is a school board member and seven are teachers at that school.
The family is worn out, as you can imagine. But the community has rallied around them and their goal to recall the school board member and terminate the seven teachers who came out in support of the molester.
They are meeting resistance, but this story is going viral and should bring enough attention to a VERY screwed-up school system.
Good. Sounds like they are getting some resolution.
My son and I have opened up a new chapter of a new book. I’ve talked to him more in the last two months than I have in the past nine years. I lost over eight years, the best years of his life I lost, because of … that sick monster.
Parents: get your kids out of these

Hat owner Glenn Beck opened up with both barrels on this story yesterday - radio and TV. He interviews the mother, Lori Janczewski and her daughter.
Will President Obama share his opinion on this story, or does he require a racial angle like Henry Louis Gates or Trayvon Martin?
