According to ABC News, a preschool in Carson, Calif. will be closing its doors in the next week or two after being rocked by a sex scandal–sex between four and five year olds. According to reports from The Huffington Post and ABC News, two young boys, one a four year old, found themselves at the receiving end of oral sex from a 5-year-old girl. The students were engaging in this activity during what was supposed to be naptime, while on the playground in a tunnel slide, and while in the bathroom. The school, First Lutheran Church of Carson School, says it’s closing because the director of the school is resigning and no teacher wants to take over the job, and they claim it has nothing to do with the sexual allegations, which they said were investigated and concluded already. However, the California Department of Social Services has written up the school recently over one of the sexual encounters between this young girl and boy, and also because of an “improper student-teacher ratio.” And now there are claims that there are more victims.
The lawyer for four students, Greg Owen, blames careless teachers for these incidents, which could have a life-changing impact on these kids who have been sexualized at such a young age. He’s hoping to sue the school, the church, the principal, a teacher and more. He told ABC News, “There were times when teachers would let aides in the room for hours at a time to watch the kids. During naptime, the aides would be sleeping and the children would have been molesting each other during this time.”
