It Happens Here, Too: Sexual Harassment and Child Sexual Abuse in Elementary and Secondary Schools


by Nan Stein 1993

In this chapter I will define and describe sexual harassment in schools as it occurs between students and between staff and students. I will demonstrate that sexual harassment is a rampant yet largely unrecognized problem with deleterious effects on its subjects/victims. (The words "subject/victim" will be used in tandem when referring to the subject or recipient of unwanted attention: "subject" to indicate that anyone can be a subject of such attention, and "victim" because it is a legal notion, albeit often with paralyzing psychosocial consequences.) I will chronicle the reckless indifference manifested by school administrators toward this problem in schools, and I will then conclude with proposals for action and intervention at various levels.
