521. Winchester College
Winchester College in the United Kingdom failed to report corporal punishment to the authorities. Instead they struck a deal with John Smyth so he was sent abroad instead of being arrested, charged, put at trial and convicted. Of course they now say that they are sorry but how can anyone believe that they have changed?
It cannot have been fun to be there as a teenager.
