Teachers abusing kids

The holyoffice blog says:
William Saletan notes that women teachers having sex with male pupils make up a tiny percentage of teachers nationwide, that their crimes generally involve sex with students 15 and older, and that they rarely employ violence or threats in coercing the teens to have sex with them. ...

The percentage of accused Catholic clerics was no higher than clergy of other denominations, and that it was dwarfed by the percentage of public school teachers accused of sexual misconduct ...
He makes the point that current hysteria about female teacher sex abuse is analogous to hysteria about priests several years ago.
