Child sexual abuse is likely the most prevalent issue children face today. It can have devastating, long-term consequences for both victims and communities.
As mandated reporters, educators and other school staff
must remain aware and educated on the topic of child abuse. School personnel play an important role in child abuse reporting. In fact, school personnel identify 52% of all identified
child abuse cases classified as causing harm to the child, more than
any other profession or organizational type, including child protective services
As such, Texas law requires that all school employees participate in a training concerning prevention techniques for and recognition of sexual abuse and other maltreatment of children (TEC § 38.0041).
"Educators have a moral imperative to foster and promote an educational climate
where students are physically and emotionally safe. Stewards of Children provides
educators with proactive tools that enable them to recognize the warning signs and
to implement preventative best practices."
