We've almost become immune to the everyday horror stories perpetrated on innocent children in government schools.
Too many parents are oblivious to the predators in and around their children – many of whom are paid with their tax dollars.
But last week WND noticed the trend is reaching epidemic proportions – from teachers providing sexually explicit material to students to same-sex rape to torture to kidnap to delivering drugs to students to rigging test scores for cash.

- The disturbing series of reports starts in Utah, where a high school teacher is accused of sexually abusing a 17-year-old student. Both are female. There's been a huge increase in sexual abuse of both male and female students by female teachers – something nearly unheard of a decade ago before "gay" became cool. Gaile Kristine Supp, 24, of Deseret, Utah, was accused of abusing a student in her West Haven home. The Clearfield High School instructor allegedly invited the student to her home to help her with her homework, authorities said, but instead showed her a movie with a sex scene and then assaulted the student. The charge filed against her was object rape.
- It also came to light that 26-year-old teacher, Nadia Diaz, escaped being jailed for having sex with a 15-year-old student after the student pleaded for her freedom.
- The torture allegations came out of Indiana, where several high school track coaches were asked to resign. Officials in Mill Creek Community School Corp. said they suspended several unidentified Cascade High School coaches after they allegedly ordered male and female team members to perform "bear crawls" on an asphalt running track. That's an exercise that requires students to walk on all fours, but several suffered blisters on their hands. The coaches allegedly ordered the exercise because some students missed practice to attend a meeting related to the school's prom.
- In California, authorities said they arrested a third-grade teacher at a Union City elementary after at least nine girls reported he had interacted with them inappropriately. Police spokesman Ben Horner said Michael Howey, 47, was arrested on a long list of counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 and even more counts of annoying and molesting a child. The 14-year veteran of the New Haven Unified School District was jailed on $1.5 million bail after police said officers found a total of nine students with similar complaints.
- In Atlanta, the motive apparently was profit. Former Atlanta Superintendent Beverly Hall and several others pleaded not guilty to counts alleging they cheated on standardized tests. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter warned that the case could be so big and involve so many people that the judiciary may have to move proceedings to a larger building. The former Atlanta educators are accused of artificially inflating test scores to gain bonus money and keep their jobs. A state investigation found educators cheated on the 2009 Criterion-Referenced Competency Test by erasing incorrect answers and prompting students to change them. Charges in the case include racketeering, theft, making false statements and influencing witnesses. Estimates are that there could be more than 1 million pages of evidence.
- In Alabama, the charge was kidnapping. Officials said that high school teacher Jesse Mae Pollard of Northport, Ala., was being held without bond for allegedly kidnapping a 6-year-old girl.
- In Denver, it was the use of a roll of tape that created trouble for a teacher. The second-grade teacher – whose name was not released – was accused of taping her students' mouths shut.
- In Philadelphia, a teacher has gotten into serious trouble for providing a copy of an erotic book to a student to read in class. Philip Aidoo, an instructor for Eastern University Academy Charter school, allegedly bought the "racy" "Fifty Shades of Grey" for a ninth-grade student.
- In Florida, police allege that it started out with a text-message relationship between Stranahan High band director Martin Anthony Brown, 33, and a 17-year-old student. It didn't end until there were "make-out sessions during school hours and marijuana-fueled sexual trysts at his Hollywood home." The teacher has been charged with sexual assault and other counts.
- Also in Florida, "nearly a dozen teachers in Broward and Palm Beach counties have either been arrested for allegedly having sex with students, or been sentenced to terms ranging from two years of house arrest to 15 years in prison."
If all this weren't horrendous enough, in Texas, a controversial school curriculum management system that once included a description of the Boston Tea Party as terror, and has referenced Islamic terrorists as freedom fighters, now has been found to be trying to charge parents hundreds of dollars to see the instructional materials being used by their own children.
The program is CSCOPE, and Amy Zimmerman, a mother in the Collinsville Independent School District, asked to see the seventh-grade CSCOPE science lessons used between September 2012 and May 2013, citing her "parental right" under state law.
And, still, the vast preponderance of Americans unthinkingly send their children off to government indoctrination and internment camps for seven or more hours a day assuming it's the best alternative to see them "educated."

Honestly, I don't know what's more deplorable – the fact that predators, con artists, anti-American activists and moral relativists are running the schools or the negligent parents who willingly turn over their kids to them.
