Sexual Harassment

Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational program or activity. In a school setting, potential harassers can be a teacher or school employee, as well as other students. The line is sometimes blurred as to what constitutes sexual harassment -- for example, touching a student inappropriately -- but courts are often quick to determine whether a student's rights have been violated.
