Speaking to the minor, police said the boy told police officers that the alleged abuse had started since he “ dropped out of school for this corona thing. ”

The case is under investigation by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, WCTV reports. They took the boy, his seven-year-old sister and his four-year-old brother out of the house. All are placed in foster homes.

Students who learn at home during the pandemic are at greater risk of abuse because they are not protected by teachers who submit abuse reports about parents.

“Our concern has always been that children are with their abusers all the time and do not have a safe adult to confide in or a safe adult to report that abuse,” Sarah Burns of the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center explained to the Dallas Morning News.

In the past six weeks, the number of reports of child abuse by teachers has fallen by about 50 percent compared to the six weeks before the pandemic.
