For Educators

Happy black teacher aiming at school child to answer her question on a class at elementary school.

Two-thirds of teachers do not receive specific training in preventing, recognizing or responding to child sexual abuse in either their college coursework or as part of their professional development.

24% of school personnel have never received any oral or written guidelines on the mandated reporting requirements of their state.

A history of child sexual abuse significantly increases the chance of dropping out of school.

Need verbiage.......We know that educating has become different, and there are always new mandates and testing requirements but without funding or materials.  We are here to help with resources and materials.
