    It really bothers me adults knew this was going on and did nothing about it. They had to know getting rid of the student in 1966 wasn't going to stop the coach from taking advantage of another kid. How on earth do they justify these actions? What do they tell themselves? They were kids!! If it's like every other prep school I've ever known their parents were paying a hefty tuition* - you'd think the administration would do whatever they could to keep them happy. And molesting their kids is not how one does that!!

    *I just checked. Tuition is 43k per year and oddly enough abuse is not mentioned on the school's "about" page.

    Tuition, according to the feature, wasn't nearly as expensive then. Part of the reason those abused who came forward were treated so dismissively was because their parents were not financially equipped to press the issue.

    I was given run around from 5/2016-10/2016 & all I asked for was a Support Group?? Imagine if I asked for help financially or my tuition refunded? SHAME & they’ll never accept FULL Blame!
