8 months have passed and Baylor still won’t reveal the facts in sexual assault tragedy

The Baylor family feud between university regents and powerful donors is obscuring the fundamental question that first sparked this newspaper’s concerns last spring: In the aftermath of the school’s sexual assault investigation, were the appropriate people punished and are existing leaders justly in the clear?
Only if both parts of that question merit a resounding yes can Baylor University credibly assure present and potential students that their safety is priority one.Those answers require regents to drop their resistance to releasing a written report that details how the school handled sexual assault cases, including those involving football players. Late last year, several regents indicated the board might do just that. But the university told us Monday that there is no plan at this time to do so.
