Synopsis

Sexual Exploitation in Schools How to Spot It and Stop It by Robert J. Shoop

Wonderfully written, comprehensive, and helpful to parents, educators, and students. This book will make a great contribution to educational practice' - Carol Shakeshaft, Professor, Foundations, Leadership and Policy Studies , Hofstra University This book is intended to help educators, especially school and district administrators, to identify, understand, evaluate, react, and ultimately prevent sexual abuse in K-12 schools. The book focuses on two pronged challenges. The first is on how to spot exploitation, specifically on what to look for in recognizing early warning signs. The other is on how to stop exploitation; the action steps schools can take to prevent sexual exploitation, to intervene and get help for abused children, and to respond promptly and appropriately if it occurs. Other topics that are addressed include standards of care for a safe school, definitions of child molestation and sexual abuse, legal issues, prevention and response to sexual abuse, protecting students and teachers, harassment and abuse policy and response plan.
