Position Paper to the New York State Legislature Advocating Child Protection Law for Nonpublic Schools

By Elliot Pasik

Jewish Board of Advocates for Children, Inc., February 2009

This is a position paper submitted to the New York State Legislature by the Jewish Board of Advocates for Children, Inc. -- a thinktank and activist organization advocating for the health, safety and welfare of children in nonpublic schools. In this position paper, the JBAC expresses its strong support for legislation requiring the fingerprinting and national criminal history background checks of all nonpublic school employees in New York State. In this manner, nonpublic schools, educating 500,000 children, can avoid hiring convicted sex offenders and other dangerous persons with criminal histories who should not be working near children.

The supplemental memorandum to this paper from February 2011 is available here.
