16-04 Segment 1: Lessons Learned from the Horace Mann School Scandal


Synopsis: Many stories of child sexual abuse in schools by trusted teachers, coaches and clergy have come to light in the past decade or so. One of the latest is the abuse suffered by some students at the Horace Mann School in New York City. We talk to a former student of the school about how the story of abuse came to light, how teachers and coaches lured children into sexual situations and how the draconian statute of limitations on child sex abuse in New York and other states hurts victims who wait until adulthood to reveal their horror.

Host: Gary Price. Guest: Amos Kamil, author, with Sean Elder, of Great is the Truth: Secrecy, scandal, and the quest for justice at the Horace Mann School.
