    Punishment is dealt with in criminal court. This here is simply about taking money out of the school' budgets.
    an institutional failure and it's easy to demonstrate that fact. The school district  was grossly negligent and should be held accountable.

        The rapists were adults and the folks who enabled the rapists were adults. They were responsible. Just like the adults at  Penn State and just like the Holy Adults of the Roman Catholic church. In this case 'responsibility' means the residents of that poorly managed district will be paying a bit more to educate their children. Perhaps the district will take more care in their hiring practices and be more diligent in the protection of the children trusted to them. I'm not holding out much hope for that. They are, after all, defending themselves by blaming a 12 year old girl for the sexual perversions of adult males.
