Officials at Shattuck-St. Mary's school kept quiet for years about a cache of child pornography found on the computer of one of its teachers. Although the teacher was forced out — he is now awaiting trial on charges of sexually abusing students — the school went on to prosper.
The discovery of the pornography in 2003 means that school administrators had evidence to suggest one of its teachers had broken the law. Experts in the field also consider such material to be evidence of possible child abuse. As reported by Madeleine Baran for MPR News, the school claims that the discovery "did not trigger a reporting requirement."
