They also blocked Facebook access from the school, though that decision seems fruitless to many students who own smart phones. In fact, it may just be another case of life imitating art.

I never suffered any such abuse, nor anything remotely approaching it. Of the 12 faculty members named, three were my teachers, and one I considered a special mentor and supporter.
Like Cheyenne Montgomery, I was an unusual student at Choate, having come from much lesser means than many of my classmates. In short: The report hits close to home, even for a student lucky enough to have avoided abuse, and I shudder to acknowledge that more brave survivors will undoubtedly come forward in the wake of this article and the investigation report.
I laud the courage and honesty of those who have shared painful and traumatic stories of abuse and misconduct. They shatter my very fond memories and my feelings of trust and respect for Choate and its faculty — feelings I was lucky not to have had trampled long ago as a teenager, as was the case for the 24 survivors cited in the report.
To the Editor: Choate deserves credit for hiring an outside law firm to investigate and then expose 12 former teachers who over several decades abused students at the school. First, Choate withheld from the investigating firm 25 years of consultations its leadership had with legal counsel about reports of abuse; it did not report these allegations to the authorities until One of the teachers mentioned by name in your article was my sixth-form housemaster.
Sadly, he is deceased, and this blot upon his memory will outlast his distinguished teaching career at Choate. To the Editor: I cannot help but reflect on the difference between how sexual abuse has been dealt with or not dealt with by elite prep schools and by the New York City public schools. Of course, in a system with over a million students some abuse was bound to occur.
But it was not deliberately concealed by school authorities — and if it was, they lost their jobs. I know because I was one of many teacher coordinators assigned to help principals investigate complaints. Teachers and administrators who committed such acts were immediately removed from their classroom or office — and away from students.
I think that in the case of the elite private schools Horace Mann, St. The emphasis in our public schools was to protect the students.
