For those of us who work with adolescents, the Brett Kavanaugh accusations require self-reflection: How different are our schools from what we now know about prep-school culture in the 1980s? How do we lead boys to be better?

In addition to reading, writing, and algebra, we had to figure out how to guide adolescent sexuality and draw the line between normal misbehavior and cause for outrage.
