by Jay Reeves (excerpts):  Alabaster, AL - An Alabama school teacher was jailed on charges of sexually abusing a fourth grade female student, and police said Thursday the man told them he molested more than 20 other girls over his 25-year career.  Alabaster police said Daniel Montague Acker Jr, 49, was charged with three counts of sexual abuse and additional charges were possible.  "This is not a one-time event," said Deputy Chief Curtis Rigney.  "This happened over a period of 25 years."  

Commentary:  Do you know who is teaching your child(ren) half the day?  Do you really?  Do you live with the teachers?  Do you watch their every move?  The Bible has a remedy for this type of evil.  God said, "You shall lay up My Words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign on your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.  You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up"  Deuteronomy 11:18-19.  ...when you sit in your house, walk by the way, lie down, rise up...  That doesn't sound like a 15 minute story before bedtime to me.  I know this much about God's Word and the God I serve; He didn't give us children so we could send them off to be taught by strangers and the ungodly most of the day, that I know for certain.  Before my son was born, I felt a great obligation to home educate him, so when the time came, I did just that.  My son has gone on to be with the Lord.  You couldn't give me a trillion dollars to have sent him off to strangers if I had it all to do over again.  When my son left this world, he had no doubt in his mind where he was going.  He passed on to be with the Lord in the most peaceful manner I have ever seen.  I used to work in convalescent hospitals and acute care hospitals alike; I have seen death, and I witnessed the passing of four of my family members.  My son was peacefully caught up to heaven like nothing I have ever seen in my life.  He knew who God is and you can't put a price tag on that.  His first class of the day for eight years was Bible and he loved it.  He knew the Word of God like no other little child I ever knew.  Not only that, time and time again, the doctors, neighbors, friends, so many people told me Levi had knowledge, not only knowledge of the Bible, but everyday knowledge like no other child they ever met!  I attribute that to his godly education, not myself.  Another great benefit was, I knew for a fact no one was molesting him; he was with me!  If you are interested in more information about homeschooling your child(ren), please visit the Home Education page of this website.  Here is a link to a seemingly never-ending list of female teachers (just the female teachers, not to mention the males) who have been accused/convicted of molesting their students:  Teacher list.
