I spent 10 years as a preschool/special ed teacher.  Everyone that ever made the assertion that men working with young children are child molesters were all incredibly stupid people.

Well, technically men are statistically much more likely to be child molesters, so it is a safe stupid assumption to make.

It's about 1/3 women and 2/3 men most being familial abuse.

 

I can't find the numbers but there are so few men in ECE that I would estimate it to be >5% from my personal experience.  The last district I worked for had 1 other male preschool teacher and everyone just assumed I knew him.

 

Just by the fact that 1/3 of molesters are female and than so few men are in ECE the chances of a female teacher being a molester are higher.

Listening to Raffi brings me right back to Preschool. Up in Canada during my preschool days in the early 90's, Raffi was on repeat all day err'day.
