Pennsylvania School District Decides It's A Good Idea To Have Separate Showers For Kids And Grown-Ups

This is called being proactive. The Bentworth School District, in southwestern Pennsylvania, is going to construct new shower facilities to be used by coaches, referees, and any other adults who might want to clean up after games. Yes, the decision is specifically because of Jerry Sandusky, and no, nothing's happened at Bentworth.

"We're mindful of the events that took place at Penn State and we believe it's important to have showers without having access to student athletes," [superintendent Charles] Baker said.


Previously at Bentworth, athletes and adults used the same locker rooms on a staggered schedule. That's still the system in place at most schools across the country, so this might be an overreaction. Even so, it's one that'll make Bentworth's insurers very happy.
