Earlier on in this post I shared my story of tales I heard about a private teacher of mine in jr high school and high school.

I stated that he never was inappropriate with me. So yes, I too could state that the stories I heard about this teacher are "completely irreconcilable with my extensive personal experience", but it doesn't make them any less true.

So I wouldn't even begin to dismiss the experiences of other students (the ones who were assaulted or propositioned).

This really gets to the core of how predators can operate for so long with impunity. By singling out victims they can hide behind that doubt/deniability for years. It also highlights the fact that maintaining a safe environment is everyone's responsibility (in the case of elementary/middle/high schoolers, the responsibility of the adults).
