Bullying, Harassment Underreported
The U.S. Department of Education released a “gender equity in education” analysis of its Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) data from the 2009-10 school year to coincide with the fortieth anniversary of Title IX anniversary. AAUW’s analysis of the data showed a striking disparity between what school district administrators are reporting and what students say is happening at their schools. Letters were sent to 10 of the largest school districts in the nation urging those districts to review and correct their reporting of zero incidents of bullying based on sex and sexual harassment.
