Wichita Public School Hires Sex Offender

You read the title correctly. One of the illustrious and brilliantly run public schools in Kansas has hired someone who has been charged with possession of child pornography to teach children. It seems that Steven Thompson resigned his teaching post at Garden City Community College amid an investigation about some kiddie porn that allegedly was found on one of his computers, and made way to Wichita. He was hired at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year at a public school, only to be arrested on a warrant from Finney County, Kansas, to answer for the evidence that found. You might wonder how this could happen, since Thompson is, after all, out on bond for sex crimes. Susan Arensman, spokesperson for the public schools in Wichita has an answer: nothing showed up on the background check because Thompson had not yet been arrested or charged. But then, you might ask, do "unified" school districts in Kansas go the extra mile for the children they claim to serve, and check the references of the teachers they hire? While a former employer might not provide in depth details about a police investigation, it is hard to imagine that a teacher who disappears during a kiddie porn investigation.....on HIS computer......would get a glowing recommendation from his former employer. Common sense, Kansas. Common sense.
