Legislation seeks to curtail sexual abuse of students

State Sen. Kyle Loveless (R-Oklahoma City) has proposed legislation which would require school districts to report allegations of sexual misconduct to the state, Lisa Monahan reports for News 9.
If Senate Bill 301 becomes law, the [state board of education] would be afforded a full-time investigator to look into sexual misconduct allegations. A teacher proven to be involved in an inappropriate relationship with a student would be flagged statewide, and have his or her teaching license revoked.

"We want to make sure a person hasn't been moving around the state molesting or having sex with children," said Loveless.

And if you think this isn't a problem in Oklahoma, I would suggest you haven't been paying attention
