LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles Unified School District review of teacher misconduct has turned up nearly 500 unreported cases over the past four decades.

The Los Angeles Daily News reports Thursday that the district has sent a total of 591 cases to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing since February under a review ordered by Superintendent John Deasy.

Of the 591 cases, 103 had been already reported, while the educator-discipline agency said it lacked authority to investigate 122 others.

Teachers involved in some cases have died or left the district long ago.

Deasy ordered the review after it was revealed that a former teacher who was arrested in suspected sex abuse of students in January at a South Los Angeles elementary school had never been reported to the state commission.
