Tulsa World reports on numerous teacher sex-abuse claims

"A rash of Oklahoma cases of teachers and coaches accused of sexual misconduct with their students has some wondering if enough is being done to weed out child predators from schools," Kim Archer reports in the Tulsa World.

Archer quotes Terri Miller, president of Stop Educator Sexual Abuse, Misconduct and Exploitation, as saying: "This is a life-threatening occurrence for many victims. Approximately 80 to 85 percent of (victims) we have spoken to have attempted suicide."
