*INFO* Since 2018, three teachers at Duke Ellington School of the Arts have been arrested for sexual abuse of a minor. Previous reports of sexual misconduct have been ignored and/or mishandled by the administration. Hiring and protecting predators is not acceptable. We condemn the pattern of sexual abuse and censoring of victims by the DESA administration. Duke is meant to be a safe space for young artists to nurture their craft and grow into creative citizens. This mission is overshadowed by a culture of victim-blaming, protecting predators, and ignoring cries for help. We are calling for the Duke administration to be held accountable for their inaction and mishandling of these incidents.
