Sexual Abuse of Students by School Personnel.
Shakeshaft, Charol; Cohan, Audrey
Phi Delta Kappan, v76 n7 p512-20 Mar 1995
Presents findings from a 4-year study of 225 cases involving students' sexual abuse by teachers or other professional staff, based on interviews with superintendents, school attorneys, parents, and teachers. Although 39% of accused teachers left the district and 15% were terminated, few lost teaching licenses. Districts need firm policies, staff training, and comprehensive procedures for handling complaints, investigating charges, and providing victim support. (MLH)
