Child Sexual Abuse: A School Leadership Issue
Mitchell, Mark W.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v83 n3 p101-104 2010
Child Sexual Abuse is a growing epidemic. In the United States, 1 in 6 boys and 1 in 4 girls will be sexually abused before reaching adulthood. From a legal standpoint, inappropriate sexual relations between a faculty/staff member and a student are a growing national concern. In 1991, the Supreme Court heard the Franklin v. Gwinnett County Public Schools (1991) case, and determined the school was in violation of Title IX. What the courts did not determine was the relationship of this case to child sexual abuse. Stopping these relationships from occurring at school is a School Leadership Issue. (Contains 1 note.)
