Series: Social Issues, Justice and Status
BISAC: SOC060000

While all child abuse is troubling, sexual abuse by school personnel raises particular concerns because of the trust placed in schools. Federal laws prohibit sexual harassment, including sexual abuse, in federally-funded education programs and set minimum standards for state laws on reporting suspected child abuse. This book examines states’ and school districts’ steps to help prevent such abuse, their reporting requirements and approaches for investigating allegations, and federal agencies’ efforts to address such abuse.
