It is traumatic enough when a student suffers a situation, such as sexual assault, that causes them to file a claim against their school. Even more unfortunate is when their claim causes retaliation from other students or school employees. Such was the case in a 2006 sexual assault incident in Pennsylvania.

Despite the efforts of many, our nation is still affected by discrimination. While that is a sad fact that you or I may not be able to control, we should be able to send our children to school with the faith that they won’t be targeted because of their race, color, or national origin. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 mandates, “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination” in the context of academic programs, counseling and guidance, grading, classroom assignments, physical education, or athletics.
In 2005, a sophomore at Hunters Lane High School in Nashville, Tennessee rode the bus home from school and was assaulted by two other students, leaving him with serious physical injuries. The victim, Brandon Wilson, and his parents sued for damages.
