> Last night I read that Australia was a hotbed of paedophilia in schools and most closed institutions. The royal commission (Gillard, ALP) really opened it up.
> I was 11 when I went to a boarding school. Nobody talked about all this, not even the kids, but within a year for sure I had the feel of it. My words, if I had had any, would have been different, but I knew who among the boarding school masters was gay (as we say now) and who was cruel and who was both.
> For every case involving anything like sex there were ten of cruelty. The rate was much higher with choir boys, and maybe higher again with altar boys, who did look angelic in red cassocks and white surplices.

Was this a catholic school? Sounds awful. Very awful. Sending my kid to boarding school seemed anathema to being a parent-- but I wasn't raised that way, based on our social class, I suppose.

Do you think many boys boarding schools have similar cruelty and abuse?
