While driving all over Texas today, I heard this report on sexual abuse in the public school system several times.
And I bet I thought the same thing every faithful Catholic thought when he/she heard that public school teachers were molesting our kids: "I wonder if the media will call for radical reform of the public education system? Or, perhaps argue that women and married folks should be allowed to study for and be hired as public school teachers? Or, maybe call into the question the very idea of 'public education' at its root?"
And then I bet most of them concluded this brief fantasy in the same way I did: hysterical laughter and teary eyes.
Frankly, I'm surprised to see this much coverage. Wanna bet it's gone by Friday?
