Improvements In Teacher Background Checks Not Implemented

Several changes regarding background checks of teachers that were recommended eight years ago are not being implemented.  

A member of Stop Educator Sexual Abuse Misconduct and Exploitation, Billie Jo Grant, says the recent arrests of teachers is raising questions. 

One of the changes that hasn't been adopted is fingerprint background checks.  

A recent House bill regarding background checks failed to get out of committee, which means it will be another year before anything is possibly enacted.
