Sexual abuse of students also occurs at all levels in public schools and is committed by teachers, guidance counselors, coaches and even school resource officers. While most public school teachers do a good job in educating students, there are those who take advantage of the immense trust and respect placed in them and who sexually abuse their students.
Public schools have historically reacted to sexual abuse complaints against teachers not too differently from the Catholic Church. The practice is known as ‘passing the trash.’ Instead of reporting the offending teacher to authorities, the teacher is moved to another school in the district without the parents or students in that new school being told about the teacher’s history. Paul Mones has the experience and knowledge to assist private school students and their parents redress the wrongs done to them by public schools and teachers as well as other staff.
While students who are sexually abused experience the same kind of problems issues faced by other victims of sexual abuse, students who are sexually abused by their teachers face an array of problems like loss of interest in education, poor grades and failure to take advantage of post-secondary education. All of these problems can lead to loss of job and career opportunities. Paul Mones has the experience to assist sexually abused students redress the wrongs done to them by teachers and schools.
