Changes in liability laws that opened the Boy Scouts up to lawsuits from abuse cases over 30 years ago appears to have had more to do with the organization's bankruptcy than their recent embrace of liberal values.
According to USA Today, "about 90%" of sex abuse cases the Boy Scouts are being sued over "took place more than 30 years ago."
From USA Today, "Boy Scouts bankruptcy: What we know about victims, assets and the future of scouting":
Having already paid more than $150 million in settlements and legal costs between 2017 and 2019, the Boy Scouts hopes†to contain the financial damage of the abuse scandal and emerge as a more sustainable organization.Was the abuse in the Boy Scouts disproportionate? I can't find much on it as the number of victims are not public.
Catholics, who have been ensnared in similar sex abuse scandals, often claim the level of sex abuse in their Church is similar to other major institutions.
Regardless, if you opened up our nation's public schools to liability for abuse cases over the past century and subjected them to the same rules as the Boy Scouts and the Catholic Church, our public school system would likely have to be shut down.
From The Children's Center for Psychiatry, Psychology, & Related Services, Jul 2017, "Sexual Abuse by Teachers is on the Rise":
Stop Educator Sexual Abuse Misconduct & Exploitation (SESAME) is an organization that describes itself as a national voice for prevention of abuse by educators and other school employees. It has compiled alarming statistics on the incidences of sexual abuse in schools nationwide, reporting that just under 500 educators were arrested in 2015 (2016 statistics were unavailable as of this writing):From The Chicago Sun-Times, Aug 2018, "CPS 'failed' to realize extent of sex abuse, let predators go unpunished: report":
A damning new report says Chicago Public Schools failed at nearly every level at preventing, responding to and tracking hundreds of cases of sexual misconduct in recent years.This is just the tip of the iceberg. Think of how many stories there are in the news every day about teachers sexually abusing students.
Whereas the sexual abuse scandals in the Boy Scouts and the Catholic Church are still making headlines, the rampant sexual abuse in our nation's public schools isn't even a story and victims struggle to hold anyone accountable!
