Eradicating Sexual Harassment in Education

Eradicating Sexual Harassment in Education

(p.60) 4 Eradicating Sexual Harassment in Education
Directions in Sexual Harassment Law

Pamela Y. Price

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on the question of accountability raised by the controversies that surround the development of the law and its efficacy in the context of education, which touches upon the basic notions of the purpose and role of education in our society. It also raises issues such as whether “good intentions” matter in the interpretation and enforcement of the law, what remedy the law provides for victims of sexual harassment in education, and whether the standards developed under Title VII work for victims under Title IX. These remarks will address how far we have come since 1977 in holding anyone accountable from a historical perspective, and whether we should insist that the law of sexual harassment be developed until it absolutely does work.

Keywords:   question of accountability, education, good intentions, remedy, victims, Title VII, Title IX, historical perspective
