Beatrice Dupuy reports:

Teachers in one Oregon school district who fail to report the sexual activity of their students could be at risk of being fined or losing their jobs.

The Salem-Keizer district officials told teachers that if they hear about their students having sex they must report it to law enforcement or Department of Human Services officials. District officials say they are just following state law that has put them in a bind with their students.

And here we have yet another horrible idea/law. Schools should be creating an environment where it is safe for students to share information with school personnel. These types of snitch laws work against that.
