Teachers/abusers: public vs. private schools

It took a massive public outcry to prevent the Orange Unified School District from revoking the charter from Santiago Charter Middle School during the trial of one of Santiago's teachers, Sarah Bench-Salorio, for allegedly having sex with three former students. I couldn't find any news more recent than 2 February regarding the new rules.

With that in mind, I wonder how much media coverage there will be advocating the investigation of the public schools where two of the seven NAMBLA members arrested for seeking boy-sex trips to Mexico were teachers? My guess is, probably not much, given that the mass media would have Americans believe that everyone who works at a government school is a paragon of virtue and industriousness, while those awful homeschoolers and nasty private Christian schools are rank with abuse. Too bad for them it just ain't true.
