As the New York Times reports: At some law firms, investigating sexual misconduct at prep schools has become a lucrative practice area, at a cost of as much as $2 million to schools.

Former Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis said: ‘Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants’.  The culture of secrecy at schools — public or private — regarding the sexual misconduct within their walls is a tacit endorsement of the conduct.  The behavior must be exposed, not hidden behind “internal investigations.”
