    USDA: Washing Raw Chicken Puts You at Risk for Illness

    The new leader of an elite New England prep school acknowledges there's work to be done to address decades of sexual abuse claims involving at least 20 former faculty members and administrators.

    Kathleen Carroll Giles started this week as the 14th rector at St. Paul's School in New Hampshire. She has listened to abuse survivors and said that no book or legal settlement could take away their pain. She said the school needs to demonstrate it values respect and empathy.

    Following a 2017 report detailing decades of abuse, the state attorney general's office announced an agreement last year with the school related to its own investigation of the abuse claims. In lieu of child endangerment charges against the school, a monitor was appointed to oversee the school's sexual abuse claims.
