A prestigious New York prep school that has come under criticism for teaching first-graders about masturbation in a highly detailed video presentation once employed infamous pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in a teaching position during the 1970s, National File confirmed Tuesday.
As the outlet previously reported, first-grade students at the $55,000 per year Dalton School were reportedly shown videos explaining and encouraging masturbation as part of “sex education lessons.” The video features child cartoon characters uttering phrases such as “Sometimes, I touch my penis because it feels good,” and, “Sometimes, when I’m in my bath, or when mom puts me to bed, I like to touch my vulva too.”
One character is told, “it’s okay to touch yourself and see how different body parts feel.”
Dalton School has a long and prestigious history as an education facility for the children of wealthy families and has employed several noteworthy figures in its history. One such figure is William Barr, an erotic novel author who served as the school’s headmaster in 1974. Barr saw fit to hire Jeffrey Epstein to a teaching position in 1974, as reported by the New York Times.
Epstein purchased a $56 million mansion located just a mile south of Dalton School, where prosecutors at his sex trafficking trial alleged he paid “numerous” underage girls for sexual services. During his time at Dalton, Epstein’s strange behavior around young girls attracted attention. “It was weird,” one student said. “Everyone talked about it.”
Barr resigned while Epstein was still employed at Dalton, and its next headmaster, Gardner Dunnan, would be dismissed following allegations that he sexually abused a 14-year-old student.
