The Weekend Desk Report

"Teenage sexual assault cases at St. Paul's Prep School, in Maryville, Missouri, and in Steubenville, Ohio, have captured national attention, but it's not an extraordinary situation for a high school to deal with. Sexual assault happens at similar rates in high schools as in colleges - impacting around 1 in 5 female students," the Huffington Post reports.

"For all the national scrutiny of colleges mishandling rape cases, advocates working on the issue frequently say high schools 'are in the dark ages' in comparison, and federal officials are taking notice."

HuffPo's deep dive includes a south suburban Chicago case:

After a girl was allegedly sexually assaulted in the boys locker room of Thornton Fractional North High School in the Chicago area in September 2014, the accused perpetrator was kept in the same class as the accuser, a federal lawsuit against the school district says. The principal knew about the assault, the suit says, and told his supervisors. But still no restrictions were put on the alleged offender, and there was no information disclosed to community members that a rape was reported on school grounds.

The school responded in court that keeping the alleged assailant and the girl in the same class and on field trips was not a problem because she wasn't sexually assaulted again. It wasn't until the boy threatened to shoot her in the head a couple of weeks after the alleged assault that he was expelled, according to court papers.

The case has not been reported on by the Tribune or Sun-Times, according to a search of newspaper databases.
