Sexual abuse in schools a persistent menace, data shows

Sexual abuse in schools a persistent menace, data shows A national charity that tracks sexual abuse and exploitation of children has found the problem of teachers molesting students in Canada isn't going away. According to ongoing research by the Winnipeg-based Canadian Centre for Child Protection, there have been 108 alleged or confirmed reports of sexual abuse in schools in the past 17 months. That's more than one new case every week, similar to the previous 20-year trend. "If that's not telling that we still have a problem, I don't know what is, because that's hard-fact data," said Noni Classen, the centre's director of education.

DELTA (NEWS 1130) — A high school music teacher in Delta was suspended for 10 days after he told a Grade 9 student to “ go kill yourself ” during a heated moment three years ago. A recent ruling handed down by the B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation says Boris Pekarsky yelled at a

+ A music teacher in Delta is facing suspension after telling a student in a Grade 9 band class words to the effect of “ go kill yourself ,” according to a disciplinary notice. According to the May 28 ruling by the B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation, it happened in November, 2016.

The case goes back to November 28, 2016, when Pekarsky was teaching band class at an independent school in Delta. That school was Southpointe Academy in Tsawwassen, where Pekarsky was band director.

The ruling stated Pekarsky yelled at a student for being “not on task.” That student moved to sit down and in the process tripped over a percussion instrument, causing a loud noise. Pekarsky then told that student, and another, to leave the class.

According to the ruling, as the pair were leaving, the teacher told the first student words to the effect of “go kill yourself, it won’t matter anyway.”

Several students heard the comment and were shocked and upset but there was no immediate disciplinary action taken.

In January of 2017, Pekarsky took aside a select group of students from the class and told them he was having problems with some students in the class who were “acting out.” He named those students and then asked the gathered classmates how he should deal with his problem.

Charges likely against Surrey high school student following assault captured on video

Charges likely against Surrey high school student following assault captured on video Charges have been recommended against a Surrey high school student in the assault of a Fraser Heights Secondary School student that was caught on video. A 15-year-old boy was arrested on Friday by Surrey RCMP and released on a promise to appear at a future court date. At lunchtime on June 3 a student was assaulted. Video of the assault hit social media later that day, making the rounds at the school and eventually finding its way to the victim’s father, who shared the troubling footage to Facebook and urged authorities to do something. The short clip shows a Grade 9 student on his knees surrounded by other teens.

A Delta private school teacher has been disciplined for telling a student to kill himself. As the student who tripped was leaving, Pekarsky said “ go kill yourself , it won ’ t matter anyway .” In January 2017, Pekarsky met with a small group of students from the Band 9 class, most of whom

While not stated in the ruling, at some point the school administration learned of the incidents and on Jan 25, 2017 disciplined Pekarsky with a 10 day unpaid suspension.

According to an article in the Times Colonist , Pekarsky’s intermediate wind orchestra won gold at the MusicFest Canada event held in June, 2017. It is not known whether Pekarsky is still teaching at Southpointe Academy.

It wasn’t until November 2018, that the B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation Howard Kushner “considered the matter.”

The ruling does not state why it took this period of time before the matter was considered.

Pekarsky admitted to all the allegations. He agreed that he had not treated all students with respect and dignity, did not consider that telling a student words to the effect of go kill yourself was hurtful, lacked insight about the problems caused when he brought up the topic of bad students with other students and created an unhealthy dynamic in the classroom.

He has agreed not to make any statement orally or in writing which contradicts or calls into questions any of the statements of fact in the commissioner’s ruling.
