Alabama and the Epidemic of Sin: Sex Crimes in Alabama schools

Recently in the great State of Alabama there has been an increase in sex crimes in our schools. Every week a new teacher is discovered to be having inappropriate relationships with students. Following is a list of links to incidents in just the past 18 months.

This list is by no means exhaustive, nor does it compile local sources, this is only links from! Even this relatively short list should raise the alarm of an epidemic that has its claws deep in Alabama.

This type of scandal is not new at all, in fact it is as old as time itself, however there is no doubt that this trend is growing here in the south. With much of the public in disgust and measures being purposed by lawmakers for teacher training, it begs the question, why is this happening? What could cause this spike in inappropriate teacher/student relationships? The degradation of society definitely plays a role, but where are people’s common sense of decency or fear of doing something wrong? Where has the respect for someone’s child gone? The combination of a society with little fear of God left and the means of communication brought by new technologies has provided the perfect storm of repulsive behavior.

How can we as a people curb this trend? Share your thoughts and ideas by commenting below or join the conversation on our facebook and twitter!
