Bill Would Allow Prosecution of Kansas Teachers

KSAL StaffFebruary 3, 2016

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.
