They exchange furtive touches with students during classroom movies. They make out in a closet while other children study nearby. They get caught having sex with kids in cars, classrooms, motels, homes, public libraries, even church parking lots. Why are more female teachers, coaches and even school board members risking it all? Are they “hot,” or are they pedophiles? From Mary Kay Letourneau and Debra LaFave to the very latest offenders, Bad Apples is the first book to look at why female teachers are having sex with underage students. Bad Apples also examines gender bias in sentencing, the psychological effect on the children they molest, the role of social networking and the media, and how parents and schools can keep students safe.
