Dept. of Education powerless in middle school sex incident

Indianapolis - When a school breaks the public trust, there is almost nothing the Indiana Department of Education can do. There is more fallout in Warren Township, where state educators say sex in school is not their business.

The mission at Raymond Park Middle School is to help students become accountable, self-directed problem solvers and communicators - lessons parents say the Warren Township school administration has failed miserably.

"If you would just say up front this is what happened what can we do about it, fine, we'll deal with it," said Tracy Weber, Warren Township parent.

"Now it looks bad for the entire township," said Jackie Stevens, a parent.

The Department of Education stance sparked outrage of parents. This is due to lack of official statements from the school itself and other education authorities.

Parents stated that they sound like making an excuse.

Kevin McDowell, Indiana Department of Education's comment:


The only time sex at school comes to the state's attention is when special education students are involved. Not even the thought of other children witnessing the act could prompt the state to take action.



"This doesn't pose any danger to the other students even if they did see it," said McDowell.


I really wonder if there is any legal basis on his comment.
