Bill Would Allow Prosecution of Kansas Teachers

Associated Press - February 3, 2016 2:49 pm


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow teachers and school administrators to be prosecuted for presented material perceived as harmful to minors.

The bill passed the Senate last year and was considered in a House committee Tuesday. It stems from a 2014 controversy in the Shawnee Mission school district over a poster in a sex education classroom that listed oral sex and other acts as ways people express their sexual feelings.

Currently, state law protects school officials against the misdemeanor charge of presenting harmful material to minors if it’s part of a lesson. The proposed legislation would remove that protection for teachers at public, private and parochial schools.

Teachers would face a fine or up to six months in jail if convicted.

I “perceive” that most republicans are harmful to the education of minors and ask that county attorneys across Kansas prosecute them. All those sharing this perception please stand up.

Larry..why blame all this one one political party when you well know it is all political parties at fault ?
My question is how are we going to prosecute Kansas Lawmakers for 1. Not working for us the people and 2. For messing with our future generations future by meddling with school finance issues?
The lawmakers in Topeka meddle with issues that could be delayed or even dismissed.

I submit that the best way to determine that which might be “perceived as harmful” would be the tried and true test of DUNKING. It’s successful application in precolonial American worked to perfection and seemed to satisfy the evangelical movement of that period. Let’s return to our roots and make American Great.
