Re: “Teacher to appeal license suspension” (TNT, 12-30).

I don’t know about anybody else, but if a teacher gets convicted of touching a person inappropriately, I do not want that person teaching my children – or anyone else’s, for that matter.

To suspend their teaching license for three years just is not good enough. I suppose we should let Mary Kay Letourneau take up teaching again, too.

When do we stop feeling sorry for the perpetrator and start protecting the victims?
