How to Stop Sexual Harassment in Our Schools

Publisher: Allyn & Bacon


Category: Education

How Serious Is the Problem? Unfortunately, some educators still think sexual harassment is not a real problem for their students. To counter this view, the authors include information from recent surveys in which 4 out of 5 students reported that they have been the target of some form of sexual harassment during their school lives. Of those students, one in four reported being targeted "often." These victims often feel helpless and hopeless; many carefully plan their activities in order to avoid their harassers. Surprisingly, much of the harassment students experience is initiated by other students - in high school, junior high, and middle schools, even in elementary schools (including the lower grades). That's why the authors believe it's critically important for every school district to have a formal plan for eradicating sexual harassment.
