Among them had been St. Paul's School in Rhode Island.
Last July, RI's state attorney general's office commenced an investigation of alleged sexual abuse. That dated back to 1948.
Let's face it: Those insulated institutions are usually tucked away in rural areas. It's all too easy for faculty and administrators to influence the students.
The latest development on that front, reports the New York Post, is that the man who headed St. Paul's since 2001 - Michael Hirschfeld - will leave. But the departure is not abrupt and it's not positioned and packaged as associated with the investigation.
Hirshfeld will depart at the end of the 2018-2019 academic year.
The Post notes that he has not been fingered as doing anything wrong.
