The Phillips Exeter Academy Child Porn Scandal

Larry Lane Bateman, the much beloved drama teacher at Philips Exeter, was arrested in 1992 for possessing pornographic materials involving a minor. It turned out the teach had sexually explicit video tapes of a number of male students. Parents of the victims blamed the school for not looking into Bateman’s past more closely.

The Milton Academy Sexual Scandal

The 200 year old school has alumni like Robert Kennedy and T.S. Elliot. That doesn’t mean there can’t be some scandals at the school. One such scandal was in 2005 when five upperclass boys were discovered receiving oral sex from a 15 year old girl. The story was such a sensation in the Boston area that it was made into a book called “Restless Virgins.”
