It's a sad day when a story about a teacher who allegedly sexually molested his young students fails to shock. There are simply too many educators in recent years who have landed on the front pages of newspapers because of the atrocious crimes they've committed against young people who trusted them.
With that said, this latest story about a Brooklyn math and physics teacher from a prestigious school, who faces 36 counts of kidnapping and illegal sex acts against students as young as 13, is easily the most appalling one we've heard yet.
Sean Shayank, 44, reportedly engaged in a four-month sexual relationship with a teen while working at Brooklyn Tech High School -- the same school attended by NYC Mayor de Blasio's son. His victims also say he took one girl to a nude beach, took another to a gay sex club, and sent thousands of sex requests via text messages, as well as nude photos of himself to other students.
