Report: Sexual Misconduct Among TN Teachers Goes Unnoticed

Knoxville (WVLT) - A new report has found sexual misconduct among teachers can go unnoticed in the state of Tennessee.

The Associated Press examined records from the state board of education.

They found that 50 Tennessee educators had their professional licenses denied or revoked from 2001 to 2005 for sexual misconduct.

Researchers found that misconduct is more likely to go unnoticed if there is no criminal investigation and school administrators keep it quiet.

One case in particular was Dekalb County middle school teacher Craig Fults, who was allowed to resign after being investigated for looking at pornographic websites of young boys.

He was later hired to teach in Rutherford County.
