At least 135 teachers or teachers' aides have been charged with alleged sex crimes involving children so far this year, and over 100 of the cases at hand involved students.

On Thursday, Fox News published their analysis that looked at local outlets reporting the arrests of teachers and teachers' aides within those areas, and got a picture of the fuller extent of educators committing sex offences involving children, nationwide.

"Arrests that weren't publicized were not counted in the analysis, meaning the true number may well be higher," the outlet adds as a disclaimer.

Over three-quarters of the examples found by the outlet involved students in the alleged crimes. The date range for the analysis went from January 1 to May 13, 2022, and the locations for these incidents spanned across 41 different states.
