This has been going on a long time in NYC Schools. It is taken so lightly that school officials don't even face dismissal or harsh reprimand after failing to contact the police when they encounter sexual harassment. One example is current NYC Assistant Principle Alberto M. Garcia -- In 2005 an 11-year-old girl told Garcia she had been sexually abused by a 14-year-old boy. The girl's mother contacted The Daily News out of desperation, but nothing was done. Garcia lost his post at that school due to an unrelated gun incident. He is now employed at Progress High School for Professional Careers in Brooklyn NY. Garcia failed to contact the police so that his reputation as principal of the school would not suffer, with little or no care for the safety and well being of the students. This man is currently paid a 6 figure salary, despite the fact that he has appeared in around 10 or so stories in the New York Daily News, all of which are negative. We encourage this sort of behavior, and the professionals responsible for our children are anything but professional.
