L.A. school officials are trying to understand how a teacher could have engaged in acts of bizarre, lewd conduct with students for years without raising suspicion.
61-year-old Mark Berndt remains jailed on $23 million bail. Parents at the Miramonte Elementary school want answers on how he was able to engage in acts of abuse over a period of at least seven years.
Two former students told the Los Angeles Times they reported strange behavior by the teacher two decades ago.
