Statement from Amanda Grady Sexton, Director of Public Affairs for the NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence on the Attorney General’s Investigation into St. Paul’s School
"We commend the Attorney General's Office for taking action to investigate the potential mishandling of sexual misconduct at St. Paul's School – they are right to shine a light on the darkness that continues to surround this school. The administration's practice of hiring outside 'investigators' to determine whether to report suspected criminal activity to law enforcement points to a culture that places the school's reputation far above the health and safety of the children entrusted to its care. Elite boarding schools are in many ways exceptional, but they are not above the law.
While administrators at St. Paul's School recently disclosed a decades-long history of sexual assault and misconduct on campus, they seem to be unwilling or unable to comprehend the ongoing problem unfolding right in front of their eyes today. This investigation is an opportunity for the School to assess the reality of sexual misconduct on their campus and take the proper steps to craft model policies, establish a prevention plan, train faculty, and connect students to support services."
