SEXUAL ABUSE IN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS

Private day and boarding schools as well as public schools owe every student the duty to protect her or him from sexual abuse by its teachers. Teachers who sexually abuse exploit the trust placed in them by their students. Unfortunately, many schools have ether ignored complaints of sexual abuse or sought to cover-up them up.

Sexual abuse by a teacher has long-range negative consequences such as loss of educational and this job opportunities, social isolation, shame and depression. As an example of his work in this area, in a case that received wide coverage, Mike Dowd represented a boy who was sexually abused by his choirmaster at the Harlem Boys Choir. The lawsuit was filed against the school as well as the New York City Board of Education.
