Intro: The chairwoman of the House Education Committee plans to file legislation to expose sex offending teachers, but the Missouri School Boards' Association has some reservations.
House Education Chair Jane Cunningham says her proposal would ban confidentiality agreements between school districts and teachers.
Currently, school districts bound to confidentiality are not allowed disclose details surrounding a teacher's dismissal to other districts.
But, a spokesman for the Missouri School Boards' Association, Brent Ghan, says he has reservations about that idea.

|Description: "One of the reasons that school boards enter into confidentiality agreements in these cases is in order to reach a settlement with the individual and to avoid addition costs through litigation, in addition to protecting the names of students that may be involved."|
Ghan said school districts are putting a higher priority on educating employees on appropriate behavior when it comes to student interaction.
