Schools should be safe havens for children. More and more, school officials and parents are coming to recognize that behavior that would have been shrugged off or laughed at in the past constitutes sexual harassment. Children who are the victims of harassment are robbed of many of the innocent pleasures of childhood, as merely getting through the day becomes a struggle. Schools are under a legal obligation to have a policy against sex discrimination and to address sexual harassment of students, just as employers are obligated to address sexual harassment of their employees. If a school does not prevent or remedy sexual harassment, the school may be held liable for its failure to act. An attorney will help you stand up for your child's rights.
