Pedophile Priests Will Have Ohio Teacher Licenses Suspended

Today's Toledo Blade reports that Ohio's State Board of Education will revoke the teaching certificates of 5 current or former Catholic priests who have been disciplined by the Church for alleged child molestation. The priests were called to the attention of the Department of Education by a reporter when the Blade checked the names of priests publicly implicated in sex scandals with the Department of Education's online license database. The Board's usual monitoring and complaint mechanisms had failed to trigger suspensions earlier.
