3rd-graders had oral sex in Louisiana classroom

This news carries the headline “Teacher fired after ‘third graders had oral sex in classroom under a table’.”
What I find odd is that the emphasis is on the teacher getting fired instead of on what it says about American society when 9-year-old kids are having sex — and having it in public, in a classroom.
Christine Show reports for the UK’s Daily Mail, March 22, 2012, that a teacher at the Tallulah Elementary School in Louisiana was fired for being inside a classroom where two third grade students were allegedly having oral sex under a table.

'Under a table': A teacher at a school in Tallulah, Louisiana was fired for being inside a classroom where two third graders allegedly had oral sex (file photo)

Lisa Wilmore, superintendent of the Madison Parish School District, told The News-Star that the female teacher, whose name was not released, was fired because school leaders determined that she was not doing enough to appropriately watch over the class. Wilmore said: “We have to make sure we have people in these classrooms who are monitoring our students.”
The firing is part of an undertaking by Wilmore to improve the culture of the school, which has struggled academically. Another teacher in the same school district, at Madison Parish High School, has been placed on leave with pay pending the results of an investigation into possible substance abuse by the (unnamed) teacher while on the job. Wilmore said she has been working with the district school board to take staff conduct and student achievement issues more seriously. As part of the effort, a second teacher within the district has been put on paid leave this week surrounding allegations of substance abuse on the job.
Madison Parish School District has one of the poorest rankings in Louisiana for its performance score. It ranks 59 out of 62 districts on the list, which is based on drop outs, attendance and overall student achievement.
Wilmore said the two students involved in the sexual act were given counseling.

This is what I found on Tallulah Elementary School (TES):

  • Address: 1100 Johnson St, Tallulah, LA 71282
  • Phone: (318) 574-0732

95% of the students at TES are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch program.

This is just another reason to shut down the school system as we know it and start over. You can’t make idiots do a good job. The school systems are completely dysfunctional and they are uninspiring to most kids. It really is more of a prison system, to make sure “no child is left behind”, in other words, they want to make sure that each and every child grows up to be a moron. This whole business of stripping the child away from the family at such an early age needs to be reexamined. Schools are nothing more than state… Read more »

Um, were the parents of these children contacted? Counseled? If there was ever a time to get child protective services involved, it would be now. Jeesh, I can’t imagine a third grader even knowing what to do without having viewed it (watching parents or porn). Just sickening…

I remember when our older son was in middle school (he is 32 now), and he would come home and tell me how kids were doing oral sex in the back of the bus. I started picking them up at thet point.

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this information, though sickening, it is the truth which we must know! I agree with Sage – home schooling is the answer! If I had children to educate today, that is what i would do, no question in my mind.
