It seems at the religious media are catching up to the story about sexual abuse
in schools I posted on June
(AgapePress) – Most of the media covered the sex abuse scandal within the U.S. Catholic
Church with diligence and zest — and rightfully so. The U.S. Conference of Catholic
Bishops found in its report on the scandal that nearly 11,000 cases of sexual abuse
occurred by priests and deacons over a 50-year period.
So why has the media been nearly silent over a draft report commissioned for the U.S. Department of Education, which states that between 6 percent and 10 percent of the nation’s school children have been sexually abused or sexually harassed by school employees and teachers?
