Abuse reports often mishandled

Posted by Sandra On July - 10 - 2010

Using the situation that led to the recent firing of Hooker Principal Andrew Cimmino as one example, the offices of the state attorney general and child advocate issued a report Thursday suggesting child abuse allegations are often mishandled by school employees.

The report, the result of a two-year investigation, also cites cases in Westport, New Haven and Southington. It recommends a series of changes to the Connecticut General Statutes that would make the state Department of Education, local school districts and the Department of Children and Families work more closely to ensure teachers know their responsibilities as mandatory reporters of suspected abuse and require school officials to check the abuse and neglect registry before a teacher is hired.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
