Sexual Exploitation of Teenagers

Chapter 9 extends the review of sexual harassment laws with the application of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and 42 U.S.C. § 1983 to the sexual harassment by adults of teenagers at school. It considers recent U.S. Supreme Court and other case precedents to emphasize the weaknesses in Title IX and § 1983’s application. In particular, it describes the stricter standard for liability that juveniles must meet in Title IX cases. This chapter demonstrates how, in other respects, Title VII and FEPS precedents have infiltrated the legal treatment of the sexual abuse of teenagers at school to disadvantage minors. Looking beyond the schoolyard, however, this chapter examines how the law, science, and various contexts actually influence teen lives. Chapter 9 ends with a discussion of cultural stereotyping and judicial bias. It suggests that judicial attitudes have, in some cases, thwarted efforts to protect abused teenagers.

Keywords:   Title IX, Section 1983, school harassment, sex stereotypes, cultural attitudes, judicial bias, new legal process theory, deliberate indifference
