Article in Seattle Times

This was in the Times today. I have to say I find this to be incredibly sad and disturbing. As a Seattle Schools employee this embarrasses me and makes me question my commitment to SPS when questions of child abuse get swept under the rug like this.

I have a strong stomach, but that article made me really nauseous.

Glad that names were named and that my kid isn't anywhere near any of those named.

I was under the naive impression that all school personnel were supposed to go directly to the police. Oh well.

The line about all personnel information gets destroyed at the end of the year -- aren't unions grand? Nice to see them doing their job protecting the worker.

Sorry, Michael; I was writing my article while you posted yours.
