We've read about the Montana judge who handed down a 30-day sentence to a teacher who raped a student who then committed suicide.
A key piece in this story has received little attention from the media. During the teacher's first year at the high school in 2004, a student reported him for inappropriately touching her. Principal Scott Anderson called Rambold in, told him to "keep his hands off all students." Anything further would result in a formal investigation, Anderson reportedly told him.
What did the students learn? Did they learn that they can report someone for inappropriate behavior -- and nothing will happen?
