Jerry Sandusky Investigation: Penn State Named Child Care Center After Defendant Gary Schultz

In July 2011, Penn State opened a child care center named after Gary Schultz, who is currently a defendant in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

When it opened (which was, again, four months ago), the building was framed as a sort of utopian green environment for kids.

Ruskin called the building “a living laboratory” for attending children because the curriculum will incorporate lessons about how the building works.

“It is getting the kids to think deeply — to begin to question where does electricity come from, where does the water come from,” he said. “Young kids are generally very interested in them.”

Along with Athletic Director Tim Curley, Schultz was charged with perjury and failing to report child abuse. He allegedly did not report Sandusky to the police when presented with an eyewitness account accusing Sandusky of raping a young boy in the shower of a Penn State locker room.

Surely the name of the building will be changed. One would hope, at least.
