Adolescent Dating Violence: How Should Schools Respond?
Surface, Jeanne; Stader, David; Graca, Thomas; Lowe, Jerry
Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, v4 n3 p27-43 2012
Educational leaders have a substantial degree of control over students and generally have a tremendous influence on the decisions that they make. District administrators are already involved in comprehensive efforts to stem sexual harassment, teen violence and bullying; therefore, they may be well positioned to identify and address the problem of teen dating violence. Unfortunately, school district failure to take action is far too common, despite the statutory duty to ensure the safety of all students during school hours and at school sponsored events. School districts can be held liable for student dating violence under Title IX, under 42 U.S.C. §1983 and under Tort liability.
