"The chancellor of Portsmouth Abbey School [Rt. Rev. Dom Caedmon Holmes] has resigned over what the school calls 'conduct inconsistent' with its expectations ... it has retained an independent law firm to 'review the situation.'" - AP, reprinted in Boston Globe, May 15, 2016. Here is the article.
It's been a busy few days for the media to catch up with all the developments in the Schools for Scandal. For example, earlier today the Boston Globe ran this story:
"More than 200 students. At least 90 legal claims. At least 67 private schools in New England. This is the story of students sexually abused by staffers and emerging from decades of silence."
One wonders if miscreants choose those tony private schools to unleash their evil because the institutions are so insulated.
Usually they are located in isolated areas. The society is a closed system.
The stakes are high for everyone so the value system is tilted toward keeping one's mouth shut and not rocking the boat.
Also, there is the naïve expectation of a Mr. Chips type who takes special interest in your intellectual and creative development.
Meanwhile, the alleged misdeeds are only more sophisticated and don't involve minors in higher education. The deans at Stanford Graduate Business School and U of C Berkeley Law School have stepped down because of lawsuits. Both involve alleged inappropriate behavior by males with females.
