Protect Our Kids Act from Doug

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 14:45

Some time back I made a post about the protect our kids act. I was not sure as I could not find any thing on it. Doug was kind enough to look it up for me. But I got sick and busy so I never posted his hard work. Here are the links and again thanks Doug, I think your grand. Hugs

I searched for “Protect Our Kids Act 2012″ and found some links.

Helping Schools Protect Our Children Act of 2012

  1. I just wanted to make you aware that you’re linking to two different pieces of legislation which may cause some confusion. The Protect Our Kids Act (which was actually introduced in 2011) is completely different than the Protect Our Children Act of 2012.

    I’m not sure which one you meant to refer to, but the Protect Our Kids Act would create a national coalition to look at child abuse deaths and discrepancies in reporting/ follow-up with the states. The Protect Our Children Act would allow funds under title II of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to be used to provide training to school personnel regarding how to recognize child sexual abuse.

    So while they are related in trying to end abuse towards children, they are two completely separate pieces of legislation.

    I just wanted to clear that up in case there is any confusion.

    Hello Jamie and welcome. I thank you deeply for helping to clear up any misunderstandings. I saw the cartoon but had little time to follow up on it. When I went to go back to it, I got all turned around. Doug then sent me the links for which I am grateful. I am all for protecting children and for helping the abused, but there is a right way to do it. A lot of legislation tends to be the wrong way, passed just to make some one look tough on crime or better in the eyes of their party. They help no child, no abused victim, they just add to the chaos. But there are things that can be done, ways to help, to understand and I support those efforts. Hugs
