Sexual abuse; people Not Getting It

These are from a story of about a female teacher who had sexual encounters with five boys from the high school she worked in;

A father spoke of his son’s depression and lost  motivation and said the teen almost didn’t go to college. He asked the judge to  hand down a sentence to send a message that Schuler’s acts are not acceptable  and there are serious consequences.

“It impacts the teaching community as a whole, how a  single teacher who made the wrong decision multiple times overshadows 99.9  percent of the teachers that truly do care, not pretend to care, about their  students,” he said.

A mother said her son turned to and trusted Schuler  during an extremely low period when his father had cancer and related health  problems.

“These young men may appear as if they are tough  guys, but in reality, they are truly hurting,” she said.

“She took advantage of their vulnerability. She  crossed the line and it is unacceptable.”

She received a sentence of four years.

Sadly it is another example of someone, in this instance the judge, “not getting it”.

About follow1in3

I am a Roman Catholic priest ordained for the Diocese of Wilmington, DE who is also a victim of clergy sexual abuse. I am often angered by the insensitiviy and hostility of other clergy, the hierarchy and the so-called people-of-God. If clergy, bishops included, really and truly understood abuse, (any kind of abuse), I would not feel the need to blog on occasion. It is very frustraing.
