The voluminous amount of stomach-turning abuse cases prompted Seattle attorney Tim Kosnoff to opine:
"I think the amount of abuse in the Boy Scouts of America dwarfs that which we've seen in the Catholic Church."
Kosnoff's statement is remarkable considering that he has secured millions of dollars in settlements from "several Roman Catholic dioceses, the Jesuits, and other religious orders."
Although abuse in the Boy Scouts has received some media attention, it certainly has not generated even near the magnitude and volume of coverage directed at the Catholic Church. This only shows that once again the rules of coverage of old claims of sex abuse in the Catholic Church differ markedly from the rules of coverage of abuse in other organizations. Don't expect this coverage to change anytime soon.

Now the question remains: When will the media really start to take a close look at the massive systematic abuse and cover-ups happening in its most revered institution, the public school system?
