The Deerfield Scroll: Gender discrimination and sexual violence alleged at elite boarding school

Number 28380
Subject Discrimination
Year 2018
Publication Date November 10, 2018
Summary Two respected teachers - also husband and wife - left our school abruptly with little public explanation. I investigated their departure and learned that the female teacher had filed an explosive lawsuit against my school alleging a years-long pattern of sexual discrimination and of alleged sexual violence against female students. I was under tremendous pressure by some faculty members and others to drop the story but I was determined to get it published so that my school could confront the serious issues raised in the litigation.
