Aggressive Legal Representation for Children Abused By Teachers & School Personnel
We send our children to school thinking and believing that they are safe. However, this may not always be the case. There will always be an imbalance of power in a relationship between a teacher and a student. For this reason, New York has enacted special laws to protect students from sexual abuse at the hands of teachers and other school personnel. Any sexual relations between a teacher and a student are prohibited and illegal. School officials are required to report incidents of sexual abuse or any other abuse of students by teachers, coaches, counselor and other school district employees.

Although there has been increase in awareness, sexual abuse of children by teachers remains a serious national problem. There are 3 million public school teachers nationwide, most devoted to their work. However, the number of abusive educators – approximately three for every school day – speaks to a much larger problem in a system that is stacked against victims. Sadly, thousands of students become the victims of sexual abuse by educators each year. The vast majority of these cases go unreported.
