- Trust Betrayed: Sexual Abuse by Teachers: An excellent series of articles with resources and links. “The project involved scores of interviews with state and local education and law-enforcement officials, other experts, teachers, principals, parents, and victims, as well as an extensive review of court documents, journal articles, and public-policy records. That research, with independent, follow-up reporting, led to the creation of a database of 244 cases that were active in either criminal or civil courts or being handled by school district investigators. In addition, Education Week reporters surveyed officials from each of the 50 states on their laws and policies on sexual relations with students and the reporting of alleged abuse by school employees.”

- Davis v. Monroe County Board of Education: Student on Student Sexual Harassment. On May 24, 1999, the United States Supreme Court that a student can sue a school board under Title IX, 20 U.S.C. § 1681(a) in cases of student-on-student harassment. The remedy under Title IX is only available, however, where the school is deliberately indifferent to the sexual harassment, the school has actual knowledge, and the harassment is so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it can be said to deprive the victims of access to the educational opportunities or benefits provided by the school. The student alleged that a fellow fifth grader sexually harassed her on several occasions in class. After complaining to three teachers and the principal, the student filed suit under Title IX. The Court reasoned that the regulatory scheme under Title IX gave adequate notice to the school board that it could be held liable for the actions of those under its control.
- Opinion below: Davis v. Monroe County Bd. of Educ., 120 F.3d 1390 (11th Cir. (Ga.) Aug. 21, 1997). The Davis case only addresses claims brought under Federal law. State law remedies for negligence may also be available to students who are victimized by other students if the school “knew or should have known” of the harassment.
- National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact (1997), Amending the Child Abuse
- Prevention and Treatment and Adoption Act (”CAPTA” 1993), including: Subchapter VI: Child Abuse Crime Information and Background Checks 42 U.S.C. § 5119. Reporting child abuse crime information § 5119a. Background checks § 5119b.
Sets up nationwide network to facilitate the state-to-state sharing of criminal record information for individuals who work with children. Provides guidelines for requesting the information. Voluntary participation by the states has as yet prevented effective implementation of the goals of the 1993 amendments despite economic incentives built into the 1997 Act.
- Volunteers for Children Act Public Law 105-251 (1998). 1998 Amendment to the National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact (1997) including TITLE II: National Criminal History Access and Child Protection Act. Authorizes criminal record checks for employees or volunteers of entities that work with children even if a state has not subscribed to the National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact described above.
- American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law on the issue of Tort Law report to the Task Force on Child Sexual Abuse of the National Collaboration for Youth entitled “Criminal History Record Checks: A Report for Non-Profits,” (April 1991). Discusses legal liability issues relating to performing background checks. Argues that if an organization has the capacity to access criminal record information, a legal duty to investigate those records will probably exist. However, liability is most likely based upon all the facts and circumstances, not just the failure to conduct a background check. This conclusion is consistent with the 1997 and 1998 CAPTA amendments.
