American parents are increasingly concerned about the education their children receive in school today. They’re also worried about the teachers, who have come under heavy scrutiny in recent years.
Teachers pushing the far-left agenda seem to be common, as disturbing videos routinely pop up on social media. Educators dismissing and insulting parents isn’t helping the situation, either.
But this story involves something even worse — an honored teacher accused of two terrible crimes.
Jacqueline Ma was a 6th grade teacher in San Diego, California, where she was one of five recipients of their prestigious “Teacher of the Year” award for the 2022-2023 school year.
Up until recently, parents had no idea that Ma was involved in anything dark; many just thought she had close connections with the students.
However, it seems those relationships were more than just “close,” or she wanted them to be: Ma is now under arrest on serious charges that will probably end her career as a teacher for good.
Via The Daily Caller:
Police reportedly arrested a California teacher who was recently named ‘Teacher of the Year’ on suspicion of child sex abuse charges and possession of child pornography charges.
Authorities charged Jacqueline Ma, a 6th grade teacher at Lincoln Acres Elementary School in San Diego, with three counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14, and three counts of oral copulation with a child under 14, according to records obtained by NBC San Diego.
Ma was arrested several weeks ago and made bail. But she was immediately hit with 14 new charges the following day, which include sexual exploitation of a child.
Authorities were tipped off when a parent came forward about an “inappropriate” relationship her 13-year-old had had with a former teacher.
District Superintendent Leighangela Brady said in a statement:
We know that our entire school community is as stunned as we were by this news. The district will cooperate with law enforcement and cannot comment any further on the pending investigation.
We will continue to do everything possible to keep our students’ safety, needs, and education first and foremost.
Now that the arrest has been made, other parents and family members are coming forward.
For example, Aileen Carillo’s younger brother was a student of Ma’s, and she said the teacher was “over the top” when she attended his birthday party. She said the teacher frequently texted her brother, too.
This is exactly the sort of thing we can’t have in our educational system — but reports like these seem to crop up on a routine basis.
Even if it doesn’t involve such stunning charges, parents are starting to look a lot more closely at the people schools hire. And arrests, inquiries, and controversy are now a very common part of the system.
When you factor in the accusations of indoctrination and blatant propaganda, it’s no surprise to see many parents turning toward homeschooling.
On top of that, many note the shocking rise in violent crime in schools, from beatings to horrendous shootings. All of this makes parents very uncomfortable right now, and they have every right to be.

- 6th grade teacher Jacqueline Ma was recently one of 5 “Teachers of the Year” in the area.
