Texas school fires woman hired to create a sex-ed curriculum when it turns out the woman was a prostitute
If you are looking for work in Texas, the Godley Independent School District is hiring. They recently had to let go of a woman who, among other things, was tasked with creating a curriculum to teach kids about sex. Turns out the woman they hired is a prostitute.
Or, was a prostitute. A convicted prostitute. She is currently only an escort. FOX-4 reports the discovery raises concerns about background checks. Ya think?
"We had no idea what was going on in her personal life. She was always very friendly and personable," said Godley ISD School Board trustee Kayla Lain.
A convicted prostitute, actively advertising as an escort, was serving on a council that recommends "appropriate grade levels and methods for human sexuality instruction within Godley ISD."
"I don’t see any community wanting that to be the standard for their school district," said Mary Lowe with the nonprofit group Families Engaged for Effective Education.
It was the PARENTS who discovered her past hooking and current escorting. They grew suspicious when Ashley Ketcherside, who also coaches cheerleaders, claimed to own multiple businesses, but information about any of them was scarce. A LexisNexis public records search led them to discover Ketcherside was an escort. I'm guessing the school district did not have access to LexisNexis.
And then FOX-4 are the ones who discovered Ketcherside was convicted as a prostitute in both 2012 and 2016.
Godlest ISD issued a statement: "We notified [Ketcherside] that they will no longer be able to serve on district committees or in other volunteer capacities effective immediately."
Maybe it's the old head in me. I've been out of school for at least thirty years. But I'm still stuck on their needing to be a sex education "curriculum," let alone a committee to decide what gets taught to whom. We were taught the basics. X goes into Y, and when it does, you run the risk of having a baby. We didn't need to be taught graphic techniques or take part in classroom discussions about preferences. We figured that out via trial and error on our own.
"Instruction regarding […] sex trafficking" was don't talk to strangers because there are bad people out there. Children don't need the grim details of how specifically people are bad. The standard should be to protect innocents for as long as humanly possible.
As for the school accidentally letting a prostitute on a board to determine when to teach your kids about sex and how to teach them about it, I wish that could be surprising. But we've seen some educators who manage to get jobs. The requirements aren't what you would call "strict."
