Teacher accused of dating student adminstrator
- The principal of Forestville High School in Prince George’s County has been placed on administrative leave after one of his teachers was arrested for having a sexual relationship with a student at the school.
Police arrested Vincent Mc Duffie last week and charged him with sex abuse of a minor.
Lindsey began his current tenure at Winnetonka High School in 2007, and was named the Greater Kansas City Missouri Principals Association's "Principal of the Year" in 2015.
On Wednesday, prosecutors charged Lindsey with sex crimes dating back to 19.
According to police, the 45-year-old teacher had sexual contact with a then-17-year-old student on school grounds during the school day several times in March and April.
He admitted to being involved with the student, police said.
Researcher Charol Shakeshaft, professor in Foundations Leadership and Policy Studies at Hofstra University, who released the 2004 report, Educator Sexual Misconduct: A Synthesis of Existing Literature, estimates that 4.5 million students are likely the target of some form of sexual misconduct, ranging from a joke to sexual intercourse, from school employees some time during their school years. Then Deputy Secretary Eugene Hickok claimed that most schools are safe places, but added "we must all expand our efforts to ensure that children have safe and secure learning communities that engender public confidence." The report includes data from surveys of students, 24 previous studies and 900 pieces of research.
