Prevent Child Abuse America Letter to the Editor in The New York Times.

The New York Times recently published the Letter to the Editor Prevent Child Abuse America submitted - here - in response to their February 7th article "School Linked to Abuse Claims Will Replace Entire Faculty" - here - regarding the Los Angeles Unified School District's decision to replace the entire teaching staff at the Miramonte Elementary School. We hope you will take a look, but we also want to draw your attention to the below paragraph from the letter.

"We must ensure that all adults receive training to recognize the grooming behavior of perpetrators. We must prevent scenarios that place adults in one-on-one situations with children. We must provide children with developmentally appropriate education about healthy sexuality and encourage them to let adults they trust know when they are in situations they find confusing."
