An independent investigation into Choate Rosemary Hall, an elite private boarding school in Connecticut, has found a 40 year pattern of teacher sexual misconduct that was often hidden by the administration. The 48-page report was released by the Choate board of trustees.
The report found none of the teachers actions, including offenses such as “intimate kissing” and “intimate touching” was reported to authorities. Other offenses included a teacher accused of sexually abusing students leaving the school to teach in the public school system and another teacher being fired for molesting a 15 year old female student and raping a 17 year old female student.
In response, Choate has created a fund for the alumni who require counseling following abuse at the school. The school has also begun working with experts to improve practices at the school.
