The National Association of Independent Schools & The Association of Boarding Schools created a Task Force in 2016 to develop a set of guidelines for responding to Educator sexual abuse. Currently, these are only “recommendations” and there is no system for enforcing or upholding them. This is where The Justice CORPS continues their great work.
