Item: Schools beef up hiring protocol: Accused Cd'A teacher was working under conditional certificate/Keith Cousins & Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press
More Info: School officials in Coeur d'Alene are taking a hard look at teacher hiring practices, and putting some new screening steps in place, following this week's arrest of a district high school teacher accused of rape and other felony sex crimes involving a child. Daniel Taylor, 32, a science teacher at Venture High School, was arrested Monday and remained Thursday in Kootenai County jail where he is being held on a $50,000 bond. Although the alleged child victim in the case is not a student, the matter raises questions about teacher hiring practices in Coeur d'Alene and the state of Idaho
Question: Can any hiring system prevent questionable characters from snagging teacher positions?
