In response to the latest wave of news on sexual abuse in prep schools, our Executive Director Gina Scaramella outlines ways that schools can work to prevent sexual abuse in a New York Times letter to the editor.
Excerpt: "There are steps that hiring managers at schools can take to reduce the likelihood of hiring a teacher who will abuse students. . . . It is the responsibility of institutions educating young people to put them on a path to lifelong success. Sexual abuse can derail a young person’s life as few other things can. Schools must act on their responsibility to reduce as much as possible the likelihood of such abuse taking place."
