The Best Of Our Knowledge #1315

Dec 3, 2015

In 2012, the New York Times Magazine published a detailed story about the sexual abuse of students at the Horace Mann School, an upscale private college preparatory school in the Bronx. As you might expect, the story got a lot of attention…but has prompted very little change.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk to the author of that article who has expanded the story into a new book called “Great Is The Truth:  Secrecy, Scandal, and the Quest for Justice at the Horace Mann School” .

We’ll also hear about a new law being touted by two elected officials from New York State…and spend an academic minute finding out how your brains does what it does.
