Emotional Abuse

I agree with the point you made in your editorial (Oct. 22), "Somebody Messed Up," that the child molestation case against Terry E. Bartholome is truly shocking. Shocking that the Los Angeles Unified School District would hire a man who had been arrested for exposing himself. Shocking that the school district did not take 2 1/2 years of complaints seriously. Shocking that "police were not contacted until more than a year after parents and students first complained about his lewd conduct in the classroom."

When she is trying to persuade teachers to quickly call police at the slightest sign of child abuse, Shayla Lever talks about the girl who sleeps with a piece of broken glass "because she's afraid she's going to be molested like her sister was." Or she may recall the regret of a teacher who chose not to report her suspicion that a mother had blinded her child in one eye. Believing that the mother was being "rehabilitated," the teacher kept her silence. "You know the story," Lever said.
