Another Archbishop Carroll High School Employee Arrested for Abuse
With the latest news that another employee from Archbishop Carroll High School has been arrested for sexual abuse, we are concerned about the culture at the school that has allowed at least two sexually violent men to slip through their screening process. We hope that administrators will take a serious look at their background check and safety verification policies to see what has gone so drastically wrong.
Two arrests in the past three months is a sign of a significant problem and we hope that secular professionals in law enforcement will be looking deeper into the situation at this school. Children need – and deserve – a safe and welcoming environment to learn and grow in and it is clear that more needs to be done at Archbishop Carroll High School to create this kind of environment.
We hope that parents of students, both past and present, will check with their children and ensure they or their friends weren’t hurt by someone at this school or elsewhere. And we hope those parents will also demand answers from their school administrators in order to ensure that no other children are put at risk.
