We spend time, effort, and money on school security because we expect our children to come home alive and well when we send them to school.
That is something we cannot live with. Five million is more than the combined populations of Houston and Chicago. School boards and administrators also have done the same for a long, long time, with students facing the consequences. Let that sink in.

Even one child victim of teacher rape is one too many. Do the math, then explain why we spend a considerable amount of time, effort, money, and emotional capital to prevent gun violence that killed or wounded two ten-thousandths of a percent of the school population.
Even one child is too many. Your chance of getting killed riding a bicycle 1 in 4, is ten times greater than being a victim of a school shooting.

Some of those same studies on sexual assault in schools also point out that many cases go unreported, and many reported cases end up with school administrators covering up the crime instead of reporting it, sometimes with the support of teacher unions.
But after an incident of sexual abuse by a teacher or coach, does anyone ask why no one noticed that the teacher or coach had a problem?
