Globe Report Uncovers Abuse At Massachusetts Private Schools

The Boston Globe logo

Over the past 25 years, the exclusive and often elite atmosphere of private schools in New England has been shaken by lawsuits and allegations of sexual abuse. The Boston Globe's Spotlight team, the investigative unit that inspired the Oscar-winning movie of the same name for its coverage of Catholic clergy sex abuse, looked into the scandals in the private schools and on Sunday published its story on the front page. Jonathan Saltzman, one of the reporters who dug into the story, says many of those who were abused came forward because of Penn State, the Catholic Church and other high-profile cases.
