Former Amarillo Substitute Teacher Accused Of Crime With Student
Over the past few years, there have been a lot of people who have decided to home school their kids for a myriad of reasons. People did home schooling during COVID and liked it better than sending the kids to school.
Other people I've spoken to or read about keeping their kids at home for their education has centered around all the mass shootings that have gone on in recent years. A very valid concern for anyone that sends their kid to any school.
There is one reason however that I don't really hear people mention, and truthfully it should be a reason at this point.
An ex-Amarillo ISD substitute teacher is wanted by APD after having an improper relationship with a student at Caprock High School. 20-year-old Lucio Antonio Murillo was allegedly engaged in sexual contact with a 15-year-old student on or before February 15.
Murillo has also been accused of sexually assaulting the same student. He resigned from his substitute teaching job back in April 2023, not long after the alleged incident took place.
I feel like there is FAR more of this happening at schools these days, definitely with a greater frequency than mass shootings. I can tell you I don't want my kids being subjected to something like that. They're young, and as they reach high school age, they become curious.
Teachers are supposed to be safe people, schools are supposed to be safe places. With so many teachers starting these improper relationships with kids that aren't fully mentally developed to understand what's going on, they're easily manipulated.
I can tell you this, it needs to stop. I don't know HOW to make it end, but ultimately we aren't going to be able to trust any of the teachers our kids have in a few years time.
