Are you kidding me? Re: sexual abuse in California school

My brain can't even process this:

Former Miramonte teacher Mark Berndt, 61, who resigned last year amid a school board's firing proceedings, was charged last week with 23 felony counts of lewd acts with pupils, a sheriff's spokesman said Wednesday. He is accused of taking bondage photos of more than two dozen students in his classroom, including some with suspected semen-filled spoons at their mouths.

In response, after years of ignoring complaints about this teacher, and a second teacher abusing the same kids, the entire school was emptied and restaffed.

What is worse?

~That it happened?

~That it was ignored by the principal and others?

~That a knee-jerk decision was made to yank everyone from the principal to the janitors?

~That parents want their old teachers back?
(~that this video is followed by the stupid titillating Valentine's Day commercial suggesting that women will give it up if you buy them flowers)
What a big mess.  This is an argument for homeschooling if ever there was one.
