Description

This investigation "uncovered more than 200 rapes, robberies, and aggravated assaults inside Memphis City Schools that were routinely hidden". All these cases were hidden by school employees, parents, and even police in an attempt to keep the crime statistics low. This left the victimized children with nowhere to turn and received zero amounts of help.
