School officials finally take sexual harassment seriously

Though sexual harassment in the workplace has been taken seriously for some time, school officials were long inclined to ignore it. Often, they just made excuses about kids acting like kids, indicating they didn’t think it was “real” harassment.

Thankfully, a landmark case called Davis v. Monroe County Board of Education changed all this when it ended up being seen by the Supreme Court. In that case, a young girl’s parents tried to talk to the school officials multiple times when their daughter said she was being harassed at school. They didn’t get anywhere, so they went to the courts. Now, schools have to protect children and could be liable for compensation, so officials are starting to take this problem far more seriously.
