Episode 6: Protecting Children From School Personnel Misconduct

July 30, 2018

In this episode, our host Altorice Frazier is joined by two education advocates: Patricia Morgan, Executive Director of JerseyCAN and Lydia Peart, Early Childhood Executive Director to discuss misconduct among school personnel, and what parents can do to be part of the solution. In the last couple of months, a series of videos was released that showed educators and leaders boasting about protecting and covering up for teachers accused of sexual abuse. Although we were incredibly discouraged by these videos, they shed light on some glaring cracks in the system. We must do better to regarding protect our children from harm at school. In this episode, we dive into what constitutes child sexual abuse/misconduct. We also explore current policies and discuss what more we as parents, advocates, and leaders must do to protect our children.
