Damning Report Shows Portland Public Schools disregard of sexual misconduct Over Decades

Portland Public Schools fielded report after report that educator Mitch Whitehurst engaged in sexual misconduct with students, starting the very first year of his 32-year career, a damning investigation released Thursday says.

District officials’ failure to stop him and the district’s lack of improvement in training and protocols to this day indicates an urgent need for Oregon’s largest school district to overhaul how it handles sexual misconduct, the report says.
