Who's Hurt and Who's Liable: Sexual Harassment in Massachusetts Schools. A Curriculum and Guide for School Personnel.
Klein, Freada; Wilber, Nancy
This document provides curriculum materials and a guide for Massachusetts school personnel concerning the issue of sexual harassment in secondary schools. Although the entire document is useful for all school personnel, specific sections are suggested for administrators, guidance counselors, teachers, and students. Section one deals with sexual harassment in Massachusetts high schools; student reports of harassment are included and the effect of harassment on students is discussed. Other sections define sexual harassment, discuss societal norms and sexual harassment, and present legal issues such as the application of Title VII and Title IX to sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination. A section on organizational and administrative strategies includes a case study about the implementation of a sexual harassment policy in high schools and examines training programs for teachers, counselors, and administrators. Curriculum activities and materials are presented, including 2-day and 5-day curriculum unit outlines. The final section contains an extensive list of resources. Although geographically specific, this material could serve as a guide for other school systems concerned with sexual harassment. (NRB)
