To the Sports Editor of The New York Times:
Although the N.C.A.A. punishment is significant in terms of financial repercussions for Penn State, a critical question is whether such consequences serve the most constructive purpose.
It would be heartening if some of the money were earmarked for education, prevention and clinical research in sexual abuse. That would be a fitting and therapeutic legacy to counter the egregious behavior of a huge community of so-called educators, who, even if not directly involved, participated in victimization by their silence.
