Resolution on Allegations of Child Sexual Abuse Against Educators (2004)

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is already present in public education through students, educators, and staff. Historically, the church has been a pioneer in the development and support of public education. In recent decades the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has been especially concerned about child sexual abuse. “Turn Mourning into Dancing! A Policy Statement on Healing Domestic Violence,” approved by the 213th General Assembly (2001), defines child sexual abuse and determines that it “violates God’s commandments to love God and love our neighbor.” This policy calls for ministering first to victims of abuse and then to the violators.
