Graves, Bill
School Administrator, v51 n9 p8-14,16-18,20 Oct 1994
Amid growing legal liability concerns, school districts are experiencing an upsurge in sexual abuse complaints against educators. Cases leading to teacher convictions in several states are summarized. Sidebars investigate why certain districts face multiple allegations and report on necessary actions for unprosecutable offenses, teacher defenses against false accusations, and state legislation to toughen background checks on prospective employees.
