‘Systemic’ 34-year long sex abuse at New York’s elite Horace Mann prep school cannot be prosecuted

Students at one of America’s most prestigious schools were abused by pedophile teachers for more than three decades but prosecutors are unable to file charges because the crimes happened too long ago, officials in New York said Friday.

The Bronx District Attorney’s Office said in a statement police had uncovered evidence of “systemic” abuse of pupils at the famous Horace Mann School, spanning a 34-year period from from 1962 to 1996.

However no charges would be filed because of New York State’s statute of limitations laws.

Horace Mann, seen as offering the best education money can buy with an annual tuition of almost $40,000, was the subject of an expose in the New York Times Magazine last June in which a former student alleged there had been numerous cases of sexual contact between students and teachers during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

1. over all expenses can be between 50 to 60k a year

And the school is more selective than harvard

They have endowments that rival those of the ivy league schools..
