Watchdogs Urge Better Reporting Of Cruise Ship Crime

Does what happens on a cruise ship stay on the cruise ship?

That’s the question some people — including a U.S. senator — are asking cruise lines. It shouldn’t be that way, say some industry watchdogs about what they call questionable reporting of crimes that occur on the open ocean.

Take a recent case, when an 11-year-old girl was allegedly groped by a crew member in an elevator aboard the Disney Dream. That incident occurred while the vessel was docked at Port Canaveral, though no law enforcement agencies were notified until the next day.

Congressional School Safety Expert Says School Bus Beating, Evidence Of Poor Management By School Administrators

Dale Yeager a school safety expert says that the recent school bus beating of a 13 year old girl in Marion County School District is indicative of the poor management of students and staff that he sees as epidemic throughout U.S. schools.

Yeager who heads a research team which has provided three reports to Congress on school safety says the lack of training and management is at the heart of school bus related crime.

“Over the last 20 years and 28,000 schools we find a serious issue with the management of staff and students. This is at the heart of crimes such as this one, states Yeager. The dirty secret in American education is that disconnected and lazy Administrators significantly contribute to crimes against students.”
