She’s right..the ball was dropped and a predator was allowed to abuse another victim maybe even more.,shame on you..
The GRAND JURY said there was not enough evidence. So what is the school supposed to do? Fire anybody that is accused?
The school board can still take action, you do not need a criminal charge for the school to take action. Just like any employer does not need a criminal charge to terminate an employee..when it comes to kids I would err on the side of caution and at least transfer the employee to another school or position…
A very brave young woman!
My question is what action did the Title IX Coordinator for Columbia County schools take? Under the Education Act, every school is required to have a Title IX Coordinator and a Sexual Harassment policy. There should have been an investigation by the school system into the allegation, which is different and separate from the criminal procedure. The school should have taken action to investigate and protect this student. She is very brave to speak out about her experience.
My point exactly!
That could not have been easy for that young woman. Very courageous of her.
