Choate has come forward with an investigative report detailing years of sexual abuse, cover-ups and failures to protect their students from teachers’ inappropriate conduct. In addition, the report highlights time and time again that parents were generally only alerted months after the abuse occurred, that teachers were allowed to maintain their positions for years, and that, when teachers were finally dismissed, it was without appropriate reporting to authorities.
For decades, students of Choate may have felt as if they were unable to identify a single safe administrator at the school with whom to speak. They did not believe there was any way for them to find a solution, to hope that their abuser would be held accountable or that they would be kept safe from further abuse.
Finally now, Choate cannot stop what’s coming.
