Assessing the Potentially Dangerous Student TtT


Are our children safe at school?
With all the emphasis in Violence Prevention focused on the School Shooter, it is sometimes easy to forget how many students are left wounded by sexual assaults. After a 10 year-old was raped as she waited for her bus, a brief search revealed that this was not an isolated event. The search had to be limited to 10 days, January 25 -February 5, 2007 and to sexual assaults at school. Many of the incidents discovered and reported here happened earlier but came to light in this short window. The results listed here remains incomplete. It is obvious that sexual assaults at schools go unreported, under-reported, delayed and sometimes reported as something else. If you know of a sexual assault at a school, please let Keys know via email. Please provide as much detail as possible and reference any mention in the media.

ALLENTOWN, PA -- A couple say their six-year-old son was raped by a disturbed older student at an elementary school, and that school officials failed to help him afterward. Their federal lawsuit states that the 12-year-old suspect raped four first-grade boys in 2003 and 2004 before he was charged and sent to a juvenile facility. The couple, who filed a John Doe suit to protect their son's identity, charges that the Allentown School District was indifferent to the rape on the day it happened and in the months afterward. They say they only learned of it when their son told them at dismissal time, and that he pointed out the attacker. The family is seeking 15 million dollars in damages.
 
The district wants a federal judge to dismiss the suit, arguing that federal law does not require schools to protect their students.
