Since Lanner: What I've Learned, What I Wonder At a time when touching a student can trigger disciplinary action, is it fair to retroactively apply current standards of behavior to teachers?

Since Lanner: What I've Learned, What I Wonder. By Gary Rosenblatt of the Jewish Week NY. 1/8/13

We’ve come a long way in the last dozen years in terms of awareness of abuse. But we still have a long way to go in thinking first of the victims and potential future victims, and in being a confident and responsible community rather than one fearful and insecure.
In the end it’s not about “airing our dirty laundry in public.” It’s about cleaning it, and keeping it clean."
