NY - Brooklyn teacher arrested for abusing a student, SNAP responds
A music teacher in Brooklyn has been arrested on charges he pressured a member of his teen choir into a sexual relationship.
We are glad that police have apprehended Vaughn McKinney. The fact that he would force a teenage girl into sex after she came to him for help with financial difficulties is extremely disturbing. We can only wonder how many other children at IS 59 Mr. McKinney abused.
Any sort of teacher-student "relationship" has an inherent power imbalance that makes it unhealthy. It's always the teacher's job to maintain appropriate boundaries. We hope that officials at IS 59 will look into other inappropriate behaviors by Mr. McKinney or any other school official.
