Weak Laws Don’t Protect Children

In yet another example of what I’ve said seems to be a creeping attitude toward acceptance of children as sex objects, Canada’s teaching oversight body has recommended changing policies to prevent teachers guilty of sexual offenses from reapplying for their teaching license for five years after their crime.  This is suggested by the article as a “crackdown.”  I find it shocking that any teacher convicted of sexual crimes should ever be able to get his or her license to teach back. Worse is that this supposed crackdown is only now taking place.  So, does this mean that, in Canada, a teacher convicted of sexual offenses included child molestation and child pornography can currently maintain their teaching license?   What kind of child protection is this??  Please see the article in Canada’s The Spec at http://bit.ly/14pVaiC
