Protecting children

October 16, 2012

When you send your children to school, you expect they will get the best education possible. You never expect that your child one day will return home, having been molested by a teacher. Oconee school district officials said today that, for the past four years, they have taken pro-active steps to prevent pedophiles from taking advantage of young people. Earnestine Williams, assistant superintendent for human resources, says the district has adopted 7 Steps to Protecting Children, a guide from Darkness to Light, a grassroots national organization based in Charleston. Security measures have been increased, as video taping is common in the public schools. And Dr. Mike Lucas, superintendent, says part of the effort is to send a message that if there are any school personnel with pedophile leanings, “We are watching you.”
