The GAO found that in many cases, school officials allow teachers to resign rather than face disciplinary action, and often provide positive references. Some schools did not perform required criminal checks, and even if checks were performed, they usually only cover that home state. If a teacher has moved around to various states (as did Kevin Ricks), a single-state check would not turn up the critical information.
So...are we going to have school principal accountability? Will the media be all over public schools the way it dumped on the Church.
Somehow I doubt it.
