Parents were horrified to learn last month that a previously respected teacher from Yough school district has resigned under suspicious circumstances. According to reports, one anonymous student reported an issue with the teacher on the Child Abuse Hotline. The agency took the report seriously and informed the Superintendent of Yough School District immediately. As a proactive measure, the teacher in question was placed on a temporary leave until the accusations could be investigated. Upon learning of the accusations and pending investigation, the teacher opted to hand in a letter of resignation. The Yough School District issued a statement addressing the teacher’s resignation and the school’s cooperation with law enforcement into investigating the matter.

Institutionalized abuse is a serious offense that results in devastating consequences for impressionable students forced to quietly endure abusive situations at school. While this specific case is still under review, hundreds of similar incidents occur in schools across the country every day. Many incidents remain unreported by students and compensation is never sought by victims of this type of abuse. Parents of school-aged children should make an effort to openly communicate with their kids about what to do in these situations.
