Great News: Second-Graders Now Having Sex in California Classrooms

I'd blame the teacher's unions and Bill Clinton for this atrocity, but that would be intolerant of me now that we live in the age of the new tone and civility.
A teacher at Oakland’s Markham Elementary School has been suspended indefinitely after school officials said a pair of second-graders performed sex acts on each other in class – with the teacher present.

“I think everyone is taken aback over this shocking incident,” Troy Flint, the spokesman for the Oakland Unified School District, told CBS 5 on Thursday. “Of course, it is hard to understand how that could have occurred.”
Really, it's hard to understand how this could happen? Hello! We're talking about Oakland here.
Flint said the sex acts incident was one of two separate cases under investigation involving the teacher; both incidents occurred last week in the same classroom but he said they didn’t come to the attention of school officials until Wednesday.

In one case, several students apparently took off their clothes and were naked in the classroom. In the second incident, a boy and girl reportedly engaged in oral sex in front of their classmates.

Flint indicated that the suspended teacher, whose name was not released by the school district, was present for both of the incidents.
The teacher is only suspended? And why isn't the teacher being named?
The district conducted a number of interviews Thursday to verify the child's report. While some of the details remain vague -- such as when the two incidents occurred, and if they happened at the same time, Flint said. "We believe the substance of the story is true," he said.

Counselors have been brought to the school, and a letter went home to families Thursday, Flint said.

"Obviously it's a horrible situation for the kids, and it's a huge embarrassment for the school and for the district," Flint said.

"We are striving to create schools as safe havens where students can feel secure and trust in adult guidance," he added. "Obviously, that trust was violated in this incident, which was unacceptable. We're going to get to the bottom of this and make sure there's no recurrence. "

Isn't this from the same state that wants to promote "sex ed" in Kindergarten?  Why are they so shocked and outraged at this?

Given that teachers can no longer even touch their students in any way, what do we expect the teachers to do about it? Pout? Scream? Imagine the outcry if the report had said the teacher was "inappropriately touching" nude or partially clothed students in the classroom.

Before I even got to the name of the city I knew it was from somewhere up North. It seems the closer to San Francisco one gets, the crazier the people are. And since this is a sex crime, why isn't the teacher being fired and named? Some sort of Union protection?

...and this teacher is not under arrest?

Planned Parenthood must be thrilled. The younger they get the girls to engage in sex the younger they come to them for abortions. Planned Parenthood is the Big Tobacco of Liberalism.

Named, hell, why isn't this person in solitary confinement in the county jail with no bail?

How on earth can this happen? I'm a teacher, and I can't understand how a professional, qualified and certified teacher could get into his head to do this not merely because it's so depraved, but because surely the kids would tell everyone! And the school is regretful for TWO incidents?

Why isn't the teacher IN JAIL?
