"The allegation is that two students were engaged in a sexual act for a brief period of time at the school," said assistant principal Sean Goldman in an interview with KABC. "I'm not saying that that was actually what happened or not, but we're investigating that at this moment."
Parents like Silva Ramirez are livid. She told KABC she saw video and it shows "the two people doing sex."
"I want those kids to be expelled out of the school because they shouldn't have oral sex in front of classmates," she told KABC.
School officials declined to say if the students had been punished. However, the teacher was placed on paid administrative leave.
Ramirez told KTLA she believed the teacher knew what was happening and did not intervene. She wants the teacher fired.
The Ventura County Star is also covering the story. They reported the incident apparently involved a male and a female student. The alleged sexual encounter occurred while the rest of the class was watching a film.
It was an intermediate reading class -- and not a sex education class.
Goldman told the newspaper he considered the allegation "serious" and said it was the first time in his 20 years as an educator of dealing with this particular kind of situation.
Welcome to the 21st century, sir.
