Students dating their teachers
A secondary analysis of a series of surveys conducted for the AAUW and administered to a representative sample of 2,064 8th through 11th-grade American students in 2000 showed that 9.6% of the students reported educator sex abuse.The students were asked if and how often they had experienced 14 types of behaviors which constitute sexual harassment.These hazing behaviors develop in school, continue in high school and college, eventually moving into the workplace.(Boland, 2002) In late 2006/early 2007 a study revealed that more than 20% of all boys had been harassed by a female student.
(NCWGE, 1997) And in their 2006 report on sexual harassment in higher education, the AAUW reported that 80% of students sexually harassed were targeted by other students.
The definition of sexual harassment includes harassment by both peers and individuals in a position of power relative to the person being harassed.
In schools, though sexual harassment initiated by students is most common, it can also be perpetrated by teachers or other school employees, and the victim can be a student, a teacher, or other school employee.
One survey that was conducted with psychology students reports that 10% had sexual interactions with their educators; in turn, 13% of educators reported sexual interaction with their students. Department of Education found that nearly 10 percent of U. public school students reported having been targeted with sexual attention by school employees.
In a national survey conducted for the American Association of University Women Educational Foundation in 2000 found that roughly 290,000 students experienced some sort of physical sexual abuse by a public school employee between 19. Indeed, one critic has claimed that sexual harassment and abuse by teachers is 100 times more frequent than abuse by priests.Girls were more likely to report educator sexual harassment than boys (10.3 and 8.8%).12.3% of black, 12.2% of Latino, 8.4% of white and 1,8 % of Asian students indicated that they had experienced sexual harassment by teachers.Most complaints about teachers' behavior tend to center around what is felt to be inappropriate speech in a class or discussion, such as using sexist or sexual references to make a point.
