We live in a world that is slowly stripping away all remnants of innocence from small children. Just weeks after the tragedy at Sandy Hook, many are making it a pressing concern to protect the youth from the shocking realities of adulthood before they reach the age. Yet, just how much has our culture tainted the minds of our little ones?
A school in Carson, CA is the center of controversy over an apparent sex scandal involving at least one four- and one five- year old. Huffington Post reports that the students participated in oral sex during the time that they were supposed to be napping. In light of the recent events, the school, First Lutheran Church of Carson, has decided to close its doors. The decision was made after the current principal stepped down and no other teacher wanted to take his or her place.
The question that is sure to surface as a result of this incident is ‘what or who is to blame’? Everyone appears to have an opinion when it concerns the matter. Lawyers for the students blame careless teachers, who they say should have been aware of the activities of the children. A father of one of the students involved loathed the experience his son has endured, and how it will change him as a person.
Are parents responsible? Are teachers at fault? Those questions may never be accurately answered; for now, the closest remedy might involving settling the matter in court. Stayed tuned as this story continues to unfold. It just might get even more shocking than it already is.
