California Teaching Credential Revocations for Sex Crimes

The number of California teachers who are losing their credential for sexual misconduct continues to increase year-over-year, a data analysis by the San Jose law firm Corsiglia McMahon & Allard shows.

As of June, 45 teachers had been stripped of their credential in 2019, so the state is on track to equal or exceed last year’s figure of 98 revocations due to sex-related misconduct.

The data was gleaned from board minutes of the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

Last year’s figure, which is believed to be a record for California, represents an alarming 85 percent increase over 2017, when 52 teachers lost their credential due to sexual misconduct.

The chart below provides a year-by-year breakdown of the 415 sex-related credential revocations that have occurred since 2013.

Learn more about the problem of Educator Sexual Abuse  and the process to revoke a teaching credential for Teacher Sexual Misconduct.

“It is estimated that at least one in ten students is a victim of educator sexual misconduct before the age of 18, but school districts continue to put student safety at risk by refusing to support and implement sexual abuse prevention programs,” said Corsiglia McMahon & Allard founding partner Robert Allard.

School sexual abuse prevention programs should be mandatory, Allard said, because they help administrators, teachers and students identify the “red flag” grooming behaviors that predators use to gain a child’s trust. It’s also important for parents and members of the community-at-large to learn how to recognize these behaviors.

“The red flags to watch out for include getting a child alone, having favorites, gift-giving, and inappropriate touching like hugging and holding hands,” said Corsiglia McMahon & Allard attorney Lauren Cerri. “There is a huge grooming process that takes place, not just of the child but of everyone.”

Educators who suspect child sexual abuse is occurring are required by California law to report it to law enforcement, but that doesn’t always happen.

“We’ve seen in case after case that failing to report red flag behavior is one of the main reasons teachers are able to get away with sexually abusing students,” Cerri said. “Schools should not be investigating these reports – that’s the job of experienced law enforcement investigators who are trained to do so.”

Leading sexual abuse attorneys like Mr. Allard and Ms. Cerri believe that ongoing news reports about the child sexual abuse epidemic are emboldening victims to come forward, which helps explain why more California teachers are losing their credential.

Again, if you have been a victim of one of these educators, please contact our law firm at 408-289-1417. There is a good chance that you may still have legal options.
