We trusted you to protect us.
Here's my diploma back.
Dear Headmaster Kelly and Board Chair Friedman:
I wish to add my name to those who have chosen to return our diplomas to protest the school's refusal to investigate the incidents of sexual abuse inflicted upon our friends and classmates by Horace Mann teachers over decades.
It is clear that an institution like HM could not have allowed such criminal behavior to occur without willful ignorance, if not outright complicity. We deserve to know what happened, so it will not happen again.
