Do average people in these states really want books banned and government encroaching into schools this much? Has all the anti-"CRT" stuff sunk in that deeply?

the 3.2 million number is just teachers, not including aides. So 0.004% of people that chose a profession to be close to kids were accused of child sex-related crimes (not found guilty or even brought into court).

Now do cops. Or politicians. Or IT workers. Or clergy.

Yes, I know it's a small number as a whole. It was just surprising, tbh. It was a big deal when the Mary Kay Letourneau case came up. You just never heard of such things. That's why it's surprising that it's 135 and it's only May.
