  • CAN’T STOP HARASSMENT

    This one may fall under the category of “the law is an ass.” But, I doubt it. An Indiana g-school student was harassed by a boy for years. Complaints to the edu-crats accomplished nothing.

    [N]othing could be done because of John Doe’s status as a special-education student. They suggested that Rachel Jones should get a friend or an escort to accompany her everywhere and to consider home-schooling in order to avoid the boy.

    The family has filed a federal lawsuit. I hope they win.

    “School counselors and administrators told the Joneses nothing could be done because of John Doe’s status as a special-education student.” Not that they bothered to check with an attorney or anything. It’s easier just to say your hands are tied.

    “‘What I think will come out is that we have done everything at the district level to support the family,’ said Ruddock, who retired as the high school principal in June.” Oh yeah, it’s obvious that you did all you could.
