The Empowerment of Telling

When children sexually assault other children at school, sometimes the only measure of justice comes through the courts.  In Miami, the mother of a second-grade boy filed suit in 2012 after she said she pleaded in vain for months for administrators to protect her son from sexual abuse by an older boy at his charter school. Herman successfully argued that Florida’s $200,000 cap on damages in lawsuits against schools did not apply and the jury awarded the family $5.25 million, in one of the largest verdicts in student-on-student sexual abuse.
